-- Emmy Award-Winning Actress and Queen of Daytime Soaps Susan Lucci Returns with New Season Slated For Summer 2014--

(Silver Spring, MD) -Investigation Discovery has greenlit real-life soap opera DEADLY AFFAIRS for season three. Hosted by daytime TV queen, Susan Lucci, DEADLY AFFAIRS was one of ID's top five shows during 3Q 2013 in delivery for W25-54, W18-49, and P25-54. The series continued to entice fans with titillating stories all season long reaching over 9.7 million unique viewers P2+. The new season promises to deliver stories of passionate love affairs turned crimes of passion when it premieres summer 2014.

"We just can't get enough of Susan Lucci -- our affair with her is out in the open and we couldn't be happier to continue for a third season," said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Investigation Discovery, Military Channel and Destination America. "Our viewers are often tempted by the suspense of 'will they or won't they?' -- and with DEADLY AFFAIRS, we already know they did -- and they probably shouldn't have!

"I am so excited to be going into Season three with DEADLY AFFAIRS," said Susan Lucci. "And I'm even more excited that so many fans are telling me that they are 'addicted' to the show!"

DEADLY AFFAIRS tells real-life tales of love gone terribly wrong - from wandering eyes at the workplace leading to adulterous romps in the supply closet to bible-study couples tempted by lust to commit the ultimate sin - proving affairs can be murder on the heart. Episodes feature stories interlaced with expert commentary from local authorities and true-crime experts, as well as first-person accounts from friends and family of the victims.

DEADLY AFFAIRS is produced for Investigation Discovery by Sirens Media. For Sirens Media, Valerie Haselton Drescher, Rebecca Toth Diefenbach, and Anne Rothwell are executive producers. For Investigation Discovery, Pamela Deutsch is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, and Henry Schleiff is group president.
