The number one US true crime network, Investigation Discovery (ID) launches in Australia on Saturday, February 1 on Foxtel.
Former police sergeant and host of Breaking Homicide Derrick Levasseur is heading to Sydney at the end of January to promote the channel’s launch. Levasseur is a licensed private investigator from Rhode Island and was hired at just 20 years old as one of the youngest officers in the department’s history. He has also worked as an undercover detective, where he had the opportunity to work with the DEA, FBI, ATF and US Secret Service. In 2014 he won Big Brother (US) Season 16 and is now regarded as one of the greatest to have ever played the game.
Levasseur hosts Breaking Homicide (Fridays from February 7 at 8:30 pm) alongside forensic psychologist Kris Mohandie, and together they investigate unsolved murders for families who are desperate for the truth. Some of the cases they explore are complete mysteries, while others may have a strong “person of interest” but not enough evidence has been gathered to get a conviction. In each episode, Levasseur and Mohandie apply their unique talents and investigatory skills to re-examine original clues and chase down new leads in an effort to solve these cases once and for all.
From shocking headline crimes and cold cases to salacious scandals, ID is the home of real life mystery and suspense. In the United States, ID is the #1 true crime network and #1 cable network for women, and now Australian true crime fans will be able to access it themselves on Foxtel.
The new channels list of programs will include In Pursuit with John Walsh, Truth About Murder with Sunny Hostin, Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall, Breaking Homicide, An ID Murder Mystery series exploring cases such as Madeleine McCann Robert Durst and Rebecca Zahau; The Lost Women of NXIVM, Ted Bundy: Mind of a Monster, Twisted Sisters (Executive Produced by Khloe Kardashian) and more.
From Saturday 1 February, Investigation Discovery can be found on Foxtel channel 616, with key titles available On Demand.
