ONE CRIME, THREE LIVES FOREVER CHANGED: INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY'S NEW SERIES "SHATTERED" REVEALS THE EFFECTS OF MURDER ON THOSE LEFT BEHIND
- The Powerful New Series Premieres Wednesday, August 23 at 10/9c -
(Silver Spring, Md.) - When a stone strikes glass, it cracks in all directions before shattering. Crime is the same. Exploring the ripple effects of a single murder on multiple lives, America's leading true-crime network Investigation Discovery (ID) presents the all-new series, SHATTERED. Each episode unravels a homicide case through three distinct but connected points of view in intimate first-person interviews with those most affected in the minutes, days, and years that follow. Hear from loved ones, witnesses, and law enforcement - many telling their stories for the first time ever - reflecting on how the past continues to haunt the present. SHATTERED airs Wednesdays at 10/9c beginning August 23, exclusively on ID.
"SHATTERED's unfiltered documentary-style interviews create an intimate connection for the viewer that sometimes break the fourth wall in a way that doesn't usually happen on ID," said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. "In a world of endless entertainment choices, viewers know they can always tune to ID for well-produced suspenseful storytelling and, in that regard, SHATTERED is emblematic of the very best of our emotional and compelling true-crime programming."
Each episode opens with the introduction of three people who at first seem unlinked to each other, but slowly their stories intertwine. From their unique perspectives on the same event, viewers learn different details of the crime and, along the way, cinematic re-enactments illustrate each person's story in abstract.
In the series premiere, detective Lee Merrill finds himself hunting down the most sadistic killer of his career after making a horrific discovery in the waters of an alligator-infested swamp. Meanwhile, 18-year-old Brook Weber is imprisoned inside a metal footlocker, desperately searching for an escape. Hundreds of miles away, Paskiel Wolfe is blindsided to learn that the body of his son, Jeffrey, has been found dismembered. His grief soon turns to thoughts of revenge.
