REAL LIFE "GONE GIRLS" FEATURED IN ID'S NEW SERIES "LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE" VIEWERS DECIPHER FACT FROM FICTION
-- New series premieres Wednesday, November 12 at 10/9c on Investigation Discovery -
(Silver Spring, Md.) - There may be two sides to every story but when it comes to murder, whose story will you believe? Inspired by the best-selling blockbuster novel, Gone Girl, Investigation Discovery's (ID) new series, LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE brings viewers real life crime stories in which the truth is disputed. From suicides that could be staged, to murder disguised as self-defense, LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE examines the fine line between evil and innocent. Filmed in a classic he said-she said style, episodes follow both versions as events in the relationship unfold simultaneously, leaving viewers to ultimately decide the truth. The six-part series LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE is produced by Raw TV Limited and premieres Wednesday, November 12 at 10/9c on ID.
"These are stories that will leave viewers hungry for more as they devour facts and fiction in their attempt to find who to believe," said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Destination American, American Heroes Channel, Discovery Family Channel and Discovery Fit & Health. "With one victim and two stories, viewers will be on their edge of their seats trying to discover the truth."
Each one-hour episode of LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE follows one highly disputable real crime from dueling perspectives - those who believe the suspect is guilty, and those who proclaim the suspect's innocence - and features expert commentary from local authorities and true-crime experts, as well as first-person accounts from friends and families of the victims and suspects.
The line-up of LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE premieres is as follows:
