TRUE CRIME NETWORK INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY SIGNS ON ACCLAIMED BROOKLYN PROSECUTOR ANNA-SIGGA NICOLAZZI TO HOST ALL-NEW SERIES "TRUE CONVICTION" (wt)

(NEW YORK, N.Y.) - After 21 years as a prosecutor with the Brooklyn District Attorney's office, where she held a 35-0 success record in the Homicide Bureau before leaving earlier this year, Anna-Sigga Nicolazzi will bring her expertise to America's leading true crime network, Investigation Discovery (ID) in the all-new series TRUE CONVICTION (wt). The series will be presented through Nicolazzi's own unique lens as a seasoned prosecutor as she travels the country to interview prosecuting attorneys about the most difficult homicide cases they ever faced in pursuit of a conviction. Currently in production with Weinberger Media (On the Case with Paula Zahn), the six-part series TRUE CONVICTION (wt) is slated to premiere, exclusively, on ID in 4Q 2017.

Each episode of TRUE CONVICTION (wt) follows Nicolazzi as she visits the scene of the crime, examines the case through the eyes of the prosecutor, and meets with key figures at the center of the case including the loved ones and investigators. Along the way, Nicolazzi shares her personal reflections and insight into the case, connects elements of the story to her own experiences as a prosecutor, and reveals how the complex layers of each murder investigation came together in the courtroom.

"Anna-Sigga's undefeated record in the courtroom makes her extraordinarily qualified to take ID viewers on an exclusive journey behind the bench as host of TRUE CONVICTION," said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. "It's an honor to have Anna-Sigga join ID's growing roster of talent, adding not only her prosecutorial perspective but, also, her sense of compassion, as only someone with her unique experience and pedigree could."

"In my previous life as a detective, prosecutors were always saying, 'Don't tell me what you know. Tell me what you can prove. And prove it to a jury,'" said Scott Weinberger, CEO of Weinberger Media, Executive Producer of TRUE CONVICTION and Creator/Executive Producer of ID's ON THE CASE WITH PAULA ZAHN. "This show is going to reveal the mechanics of how these murder cases work with behind-the-scenes insight that viewers have never been exposed to before, demonstrating how prosecutors piece together information from so many sources to form a compelling case that will lead a jury to make a prudent decision."

TRUE CONVICTION (wt) is produced for Investigation Discovery by Weinberger Media. For Weinberger Media, Scott Weinberger is executive producer. For ID, Lorna Thomas is senior executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Jane Latman is executive vice president of development, Kevin Bennett is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President of Investigation Discovery, Destination America, and American Heroes Channel.
