KHLOÉ KARDASHIAN AND INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY EXPAND TRUE-CRIME PARTNERSHIP WITH NEW SERIES, TWISTED LOVE
The new love-gone-wrong series premieres on February 3rd at 9/8c, only on Investigation Discovery
(New York, NY) – Don’t get it twisted: love can be a terrifying thing. And love stories become even more heart-pounding when they turn unexpectedly dangerous. Following the success of the series TWISTED SISTERS, executive producer Khloé Kardashian is back, and in partnership with 44 Blue Productions and Khlomoney Entertainment, she is bringing new twisted tales to Investigation Discovery. But instead of focusing on insidious siblings, this series looks at how love, of any kind, can go horribly wrong. This new six-part series shares tales of families, friends and lovers, and documents how at any moment, a trusted love can turn into a treacherous fate. TWISTED LOVE premieres on February 3rd at 9/8c, only on Investigation Discovery.
“I love the idea of love, but these stories will stun even the most hopeless romantic. I’ve been a longtime ID fan, and I’ve never encountered stories as shocking as these crimes of love and passion,” says Khloé Kardashian, executive producer of the series, along with Stephanie Noonan Drachkovitch of 44 Blue Productions.
“Khloé is a repeat offender…of the best kind. We are thrilled to expand the TWISTED franchise with Khloé and her team,” says Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. “With her ‘killer’ instinct for storytelling combined with these jaw-dropping cases, TWISTED LOVE is set to be our most striking love-gone-wrong show of the year.”
This series chronicles what happens when adoration becomes obsession, taking viewers inside the most macabre crimes committed in the name of love. With stories from across the country, TWISTED LOVE delves into the darker side of affection, but these mysteries aren’t just caustic cases of lover’s spats. Episodes recount various issues of love, like what happens when parents disapprove of a child’s partner? Who gets burned when a workplace romance goes awry? And when a torrid affair ends up lethal, who is truly to blame? Emotions are at the forefront of this series, and each episode takes a different look at what happens when intimacy turns evil.
