(Beverly Hills, CA) - This September, MSNBC Host and NBC News Correspondent/Anchor Tamron Hall joins Investigation Discovery as host of an all-new, fast-paced, weekly investigative news program, DEADLINE: CRIME WITH TAMRON HALL. A respected anchor and investigative journalist, Hall knows first-hand the effect of violent crime, as her older sister was a murder victim in a case that is still officially unsolved. In each one-hour episode, Hall is joined by a core team of correspondents with extensive knowledge of law enforcement, to go beyond the headlines and explore not only what happened, but why it happened. Produced by NBC News' Peacock Productions, the new 13-part series, DEADLINE: CRIME WITH TAMRON HALL makes its world premiere debut on Sunday, September 1 at 9e/8c.

"Tamron Hall is truly a rising star, and Investigation Discovery is honored to welcome this extraordinarily talented journalist to the ID family," said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Investigation Discovery, Destination America and Military Channel. "Investigative news magazines are arguably one of the most enduring and popular formats in television. With DEADLINE: CRIME, we wanted to put a fresh new spin on the genre and a subject that has long fascinated millions of TV viewers: true crime. Given Tamron's personal experience, DEADLINE: CRIME provides the perfect format for this passionate and uniquely gifted investigative journalist."

"The heartbreak that comes after a crime is committed can rip a family apart," said Hall. "It's something that none of us should have to experience, yet it's a reality for many. What I've learned from survivors and their families is that the fight for justice and the will to heal should be shared. In cases where justice has not been fully carried out, the truth must be sought and told. DEADLINE: CRIME gives me an opportunity to bring these complex and compelling stories to viewers and in some cases, you will find yourself asking... what would I do?"

Throughout the series, Tamron will be joined by Emmy Award-winning journalists Michelle Sigona and Angeline Hartmann, as well as America's Most Wanted veteran correspondent Tom Morris Jr. DEADLINE: CRIME also features special appearances from ID favorites Aphrodite Jones (bestselling author, investigative reporter and host of True Crime with Aphrodite Jones), and Keith Beauchamp (renowned documentary filmmaker and host of The Injustice Files). By combining the talents of some of the industry's most distinguished journalists, DEADLINE: CRIME allows viewers to experience the stunning power of storytelling at its best.

Going out of the studios and into the street to find answers, Tamron and the team of correspondents bring their personal points of view and signature styles to each story they cover. DEADLINE: CRIME talks to detectives, prosecutors and psychological profilers - as well as criminals and their victims - to reveal what caused people to turn to crime and whether justice was ultimately served.

DEADLINE: CRIME WITH TAMRON HALL airs Sundays at 9/8c beginning September 1. The following investigations will be featured in September:
