Investigation Discovery has greenlit a new series titled “Death by Gossip with Wendy Williams,” with the so-called Diva of Dish serving as host and executive producer.
Premiering in the fall of 2015, idle chitchat turns dark and dangerous as ID uncovers crimes fueled by rumors and sordid half-truths that lead to the ultimate betrayal… murder.
“There’s nobody better than the daring doyenne of daytime, Wendy Williams to offer this cautionary tale to those who indulge in chatter and innuendo,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Discovery Networks. “DEATH BY GOSSIP proves that sticks and stones may break your bones… but words can really kill you.”
“It’s no rumor… I’m obsessed with ID to the point that it keeps me up at night,” said Wendy Williams. “I couldn’t be happier to host and executive producer my own project on one of my favorite networks and showcase my brand of talk, which won’t get you killed, but it will kill in the ratings!”
“Beware of offices, gyms, playgrounds, and nosey neighborhoods, as they all make for great rumor mills, but when dishing the dirt results in a body six feet under, not minding one’s own beeswax can quickly become a deadly offense. From a respected English teacher’s very own Shakespearean tragedy entangled by sex, greed and betrayal, to college kid wrapped up in a twisted love triangle with a dash of black magic, DEATH BY GOSSIP warns viewers of the tempting grapevine, because it can quickly strangle the most unsuspecting of prattlers.”
The series is produced by Wendy Williams Productions (WWP) in association with m2 Pictures for Investigation Discovery.
