INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY CONTINUES ITS MISSION TO FIND MISSING CHILDREN AND BRING FUGITIVES TO JUSTICE, ANNOUNCING SECOND SEASON OF “IN PURSUIT WITH JOHN WALSH”
(Silver Spring, Md.) – After a successful first season helping to bring three fugitives to justice, Investigation Discovery and victims’ rights advocate John Walsh are teaming once again to hunt down persons of interest and find missing children with a second season order of IN PURSUIT WITH JOHN WALSH. In the series, John Walsh and his son, Callahan Walsh, introduce viewers to unsolved violent crimes that urgently need to be closed. Keeping the anonymity of callers in utmost importance, this series relies on tips and leads from the audience who may have seen something that would help authorities, with all calls and online tips vetted by trained experts and followed up on by the appropriate authorities, including local law enforcement, FBI, and the U.S. Marshals. Additionally, in partnership with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), the series also features missing children each hour, providing age-progression photos and descriptions in the hopes that viewers can provide new leads to their whereabouts. Produced by Jupiter Entertainment, the 12-episode, season two of IN PURSUIT WITH JOHN WALSH will premiere in early 2020 on Investigation Discovery, America’s leading true-crime channel.
“The first season of IN PURSUIT led to three captures of fugitives on the run – but, there is still so much more work to be done,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel, and Destination America. “I firmly believe that by bringing together an icon of justice like, John Walsh, with Investigation Discovery’s active and engaged audience, we can help bring even more answers to families who have sought answers and demanded justice for far too long.”
The second season of IN PURSUIT WITH JOHN WALSH is produced for Investigation Discovery by Jupiter Entertainment. For Jupiter, Harrison Land, Stephen Land, and Gregory Palmer are executive producers. For ID, Lorna Thomas is senior executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Kevin Bennett is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President of Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel and Destination America.
