Investigation Discovery has several thought-provoking blockbuster specials coming to their platforms in the month of August.
Over the course of the month, ID will feature a slate of high-profile cases from the 1990s, including a three-part deep dive into the unsolved deaths of hip-hop’s most famous feuding icons Biggie and Tupac Shakur. Through exclusive interviews and unique insight into both shootings, Who Killed Biggie and Tupac? offers up answers from the key players involved.
Who Killed Biggie and Tupac? premieres August 14 @ 9/8c on ID & will be available to stream the same day on Discovery+.
The upcoming lineup will also revisit preeminent murder cases of the ’90s, including:
MENENDEZ BROTHERS: MISJUDGED?
Thirty years ago, the nation watched every moment of the Menendez Brothers’ dramatic trial in real time on Court TV. Now, thanks to TikTok and social media, an entirely new generation is learning their story for the very first time. Details of the murder were seared into our collective memory: the 911 call, the crime scene photos, the Rolexes. The media narrative – that two Beverly Hill boys killed their parents out of greed and allegedly concocted a fantastic account to get out of it – remains a national punchline. But now, three decades later, as Gen Z discovers the case, they see the story of two boys who suffered horrific abuse at the hands of their mother, father… and the media. Did we get it all wrong?
Premieres August 7 @ 9/8c on ID & will be available to stream the same day on Discovery+.
THE KILLER NANNY
The murder trial of British au pair Louise Woodward was televised live in the UK transfixing viewers and splitting public opinion about whether she was guilty or innocent. Twenty-five years later evidence is reexamined with unprecedented access to witnesses, the defense team, the prosecution, and members of the jury who decided her fate.
Premieres August 21 @ 9/8c on ID & will be available to stream the same day on Discovery+.
MARY KAY LETOURNEAU: NOTES ON A SCANDAL
With all the ingredients of a Hollywood movie, this sex scandal shocked, enthralled, and enraged 1990s America. 34-year-old elementary school teacher, Mary Kay Letourneau, who was married with 4 kids, began an affair in 1997 with her 12-year-old student, Vili Fualauu. They not only didn’t deny the outrageous behavior, but they would also eventually embrace the love affair that included French-kissing on school grounds, trysts in her van, and even sexual rendezvous in her family home. The question on everyone’s mind was: Is this true love, or is Mary Kay Letourneau a pedophile, guilty of child rape?
Premieres August 28 @ 9/8c on ID & will be available to stream the same day on Discovery+.
