INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY GREENLIGHTS NEW SERIES "DEATH BY GOSSIP WITH WENDY WILLIAMS"

Talk Show Queen Serves as Host and Executive Producer for Series Premiering Fall 2015

(Silver Spring, MD) - Investigation Discovery proves that talk may be cheap, but gossip can be deadly with the greenlight of a new series DEATH BY GOSSIP WITH WENDY WILLIAMS, with the Diva of Dish serving as host and executive producer. Premiering in the fall of 2015, idle chitchat turns dark and dangerous as ID uncovers crimes fueled by rumors and sordid half-truths that lead to the ultimate betrayal... murder.

"There's nobody better than the daring doyenne of daytime, Wendy Williams to offer this cautionary tale to those who indulge in chatter and innuendo," said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Discovery Networks. "DEATH BY GOSSIP proves that sticks and stones may break your bones... but words can really kill you."

"It's no rumor... I'm obsessed with ID to the point that it keeps me up at night," said Wendy Williams. "I couldn't be happier to host and executive producer my own project on one of my favorite networks and showcase my brand of talk, which won't get you killed, but it will kill in the ratings!"

Beware of offices, gyms, playgrounds, and nosey neighborhoods, as they all make for great rumor mills, but when dishing the dirt results in a body six feet under, not minding one's own beeswax can quickly become a deadly offense. From a respected English teacher's very own Shakespearean tragedy entangled by sex, greed and betrayal, to college kid wrapped up in a twisted love triangle with a dash of black magic, DEATH BY GOSSIP warns viewers of the tempting grapevine, because it can quickly strangle the most unsuspecting of prattlers.

DEATH BY GOSSIP is produced by Wendy Williams Productions (WWP) in association with m2 Pictures for Investigation Discovery. Wendy Hunter, Kevin Hunter, Jill Ramsey and Lisa Knapp are executive producers for WWP. Mike Sinclair, David O'Donnell and Ashley Crary are executive producers for m2 Pictures. For Investigation Discovery, Thomas Cutler is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Kevin Bennett is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President.

About Wendy Williams

Mother, wife, media mogul, entrepreneur, performer and best-selling author, Wendy Williams is best known for her long-running talk show "The Wendy Williams Show." Named one of the "35 Most Powerful People in Media" by The Hollywood Reporter in both 2012 and 2013, Williams' nationally-syndicated weekday program was hailed a "breakthrough in daytime" by The New York Times when it launched in 2009. The show now airs in 52 countries, on BET at midnight, launched its sixth season in fall 2014 and has been renewed through 2017. Prior to achieving success in daytime television, Williams built a devoted audience of fans throughout an enormously successful 23-year career in radio. "The Wendy Williams Experience" was Williams' top-rated, daily radio show. Syndicated nationally, it aired on WBLS in New York and was listened to by an audience of more than 12 million people. One of the most popular personalities in radio, Williams was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in November of 2009 - one of only a handful of women with that honor.
