(Silver Spring, Md.) - When money isn't an object, the privileged can easily be lured into a life on the wild side. But what happens when trust funds and sky-high allowances mix with a lack of boundaries? Investigation Discovery's (ID) newest series YOUNG, HOT & CROOKED exposes the shocking true crime stories committed by the young and wealthy. In each episode, in-depth interviews with family, friends, and authorities uncover the truth behind what led the young perpetrator down a crooked path. From the timid teen desperate for recognition at his high school to the East Coast hunk who sacrifices his dreams of becoming a Hollywood star for love, or the true story of Jordan Belfort who crashed and burned on Wall Street, YOUNG, HOT & CROOKED is jam-packed with juicy stories of those with an attraction to the fast life. YOUNG, HOT & CROOKED premieres with back-to-back episodes on Friday, September 5 at 10/9c and 10:30/9:30c only on ID.
