'Very Scary People' is for those who seek thrills and don't mind a bit of gore. 

Release date

This HLN-backed six-episode show will release on July 12, 9 pm ET/ PT. 

Plot

During each episode, the viewers will be able to take a glimpse into the lives of hardened criminals who are frightening and equally diabolical. 'Son of Sam: The Duke of Death' (July 12), 'BTK: Bind, Torture, Kill' (July 19), 'The Night Stalker: Summer of Terror' (July 26), 'The Co-ed Killer: The Murder Capital of the World' (August 2), 'Robert Durst: World's Worst Fugitive' (August 9), and, 'Dr. Death: A License to Kill' (August 16) are the episode titles as released by the network. 

Every episode will span for a good two hours, and in that time, the crimes of some of the extremely "elusive miscreants" will be traced and investigated until justice is served. The premise is simple but the misdeeds aren't. The viewers will have to prepare for some stomach-turning crimes. 

Cast

Actor-singer Donnie Wahlberg will resume his role as the host of the show. Talking about the gig, Donnie told TV Insider that he takes his position very seriously. "There are real victims, real bad guys and gals and real consequences," he said and added: "It's heavy stuff, and I take the responsibility seriously." He also shared that people should watch it because it helps control the fear we have of the unknown (in this case the crimes that lie hidden in plain sight). 

Last year, ahead of the release of Season 1, Donnie told Chicago Tribune how he prepares himself for a show like 'Very Scary People' despite being an "actor on a TV show." He confirmed working with real cops and homicide detectives to learn tricks of the trade, which helps him stay focussed and be responsible on a serious docu-series such as this.
