John Walsh is set to topline a new series for Investigation Discovery. In Pursuit with John Walsh is described as a real-time investigation series that mobilizes ID’s audience to actively engage in the pursuit of justice.
Backed by decades of victim advocacy with a mission stemming from his own personal tragedy, In Pursuit utilizes Walsh’s experience in the field coupled with a call center able to help law enforcement find leads in real time, according to ID. Produced by Zero Point Zero, In Pursuit with John Walsh is set to premiere on Investigation Discovery in first quarter, 2019.
In addition, Discovery Channel said today it has ordered Undercover Billionaire, a new series that taps the expertise of a self-made mogul to see if it’s possible to create a million-dollar company in just 90 days with just a few dollars in his pocket.
The mogul, whose true identity will remain anonymous, will be dropped off in a remote community with little resources and no contacts. He’ll need to build connections, relationships and get a job that pays cash to build a company from scratch. If successful, at the end of the 90 days, he’ll turn over the company he built to the people who helped him out along the way, and finally, reveal his true identity.
A premiere date has not yet been set.
