When something works, why change it. These so-called docu-series have been TV One's most successful in recent years, from Unsung, to Find Our Missing, so it should be no surprise that they continue to add to their docu-series library.

Here's a new one, titled Fatal Attraction, which premieres Monday, June 3, 9PM/ET, via press release from TV One:

The series will be narrated by Lynn Whitfield, and will explore the devastating consequences when all-consuming romantic passion erupts with such intensity that ordinary people commit unthinkable and criminal acts in the name of love.

Driven by powerful real-life stories, Fatal Attraction weaves together intimate first person interviews, evocative cinematography, and exclusive interrogation footage. Each episode opens with a shocking crime and then flashes back through reenactments to the beginning of the incident providing viewers a glimpse into the dark heart of a dangerous romance.

“We’ve enjoyed strong viewer response to our roster of docu-series and we believe Fatal Attraction will continue to captivate that viewer interest,” remarked Tia Smith, executive in charge of production for TV One. “Given the propensity of love-gone-wrong stories in today’s news cycle, the series taps into an unfortunate, but timely trend, illustrating the power of misguided passion.”

From the makers of Snapped, TV One’s newest docu-series Fatal Attraction is produced by Jupiter Entertainment.  Credits from Jupiter Entertainment include co-executive producer, Todd Moss and executive in charge of production, Harrison Land. Kaye Zusmann serves as executive producer and executive in charge of production for TV One is Tia Smith.
