FROM WEDDING BELLS TO DIVORCE HELL: NEW SERIES "FATAL VOWS" EXPLORES WHEN LOVE TURNS LETHAL ON INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY

(Silver Spring, MD) - When marriages fail, divorce can turn ugly - even, deadly: what was once a passionate union becomes plagued by spite, greed, betrayal and, literally, backstabbing. Investigation Discovery's newest series, FATAL VOWS, takes a new twist on tales of love turned lethal. Each hour-long episode explores tumultuous, shocking, and disturbing divorces, and delves into the criminal psychology behind what actually happens when one spouse determines that the only way out is murder. Guiding viewers through these crimes of passion are Dr. Brian Russell, an attorney as well as a forensic and clinical psychologist, and Stacy Kaiser, a licensed psychotherapist and relationship expert. In each episode, the two experts examine the couple featured and provide analysis on marriages that break down to the point that divorce and murder collide. FATAL VOWS premieres Saturday, November 17 from 10-11 PM (ET/PT) on Investigation Discovery.

"Investigation Discovery, the home of the "love gone wrong" genre adds to our viewers' guilty pleasure with a new series, FATAL VOWS which showcases stories that go from the altar to six feet under," said Henry Schleiff, general manager, Investigation Discovery. "With the added element of expertise provided by Dr. Brian Russell and Stacy Kaiser, we are guided through each relationship to learn what lead from wedding bells to divorce hell!"

Interviews with family, friends, law enforcement and potential victims drive the narration in FATAL VOWS, while Dr. Brian Russell and Stacy Kaiser dive into the psychology of the relationship to figure out the motives behind each partner's actions and why some people choose murder over divorce. Dr. Brian Russell is a forensic and clinical psychologist, licensed attorney, and national television pundit on psychological, legal and cultural issues. An expert witness in both criminal and civil cases, Dr. Russell has vast experience in conducting forensic evaluations, and is often pursued for psychological and legal insight into major crime stories, court cases, outrageous celebrity behavior, and cultural issues in the news. Stacy Kaiser is a licensed psychotherapist, relationship expert, prominent media personality and author of "How to be a Grown Up." Dr. Kaiser has a thriving private practice and is a much sought after public speaker on a wide variety of topics, ranging from office and personal relationship issues to anger management and family politics.

The premiere episode of FATAL VOWS follows the story of the "perfect" couple - Bob and Becky Klosterman. Wealthy and well connected, Bob is a retired Navy commander, and Becky is a stay-at-home wife who plays by the rules of a doting Navy wife. In public, the Klostermans are a model couple but in private, Becky suffers and even fears for her own life. When Bob's exploits at a strip club surface, Becky files for divorce but before they can finalize the proceedings, two bullets end their relationship instead.

FATAL VOWS is produced for Investigation Discovery by CMJ Productions. For CMJ, John Kuyk is the executive producer and Judith Beauchemin is the producer. For Investigation Discovery, Pamela Deutsch is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, and Henry Schleiff is general manager.
