"Barbara Walters Presents American Scandals," formerly known as "American Scandal with Barbara Walters," is a television series on Investigation Discovery.

From Mary Kay Letourneau to the Menendez Brothers, Jim Bakker to Jean Harris, these are the stories that both shocked and captivated the nation. The controversial tales stayed in the headlines and not only dominated the 24-hour news cycle, but created it. The crimes kept the public mesmerized and the political scandals captivated the country. Newsmakers scrambled to get the interviews that would make history as these mysteries unfolded but, only one journalist was so respected that she got these stories first, Barbara Walters. Now Walters recounts these gripping stories with key players and original reporters as well as new, exclusive interviews in this series.

Featuring brand new interviews from individuals who have never spoken before, this series also opens the vaults of the newswoman's most memorable one-on-ones offering unprecedented access, not just retelling infamous stories, but uncovering new angles and information, as well as new scenes from the original interviews. For the first time, viewers will hear from people who weren't interviewed at the time of the news-making story to shed new light. Barbara Walters provides backstory of these iconic tales — the behind-the-scenes scoop that no one ever heard or saw — often admitting to her own personal thoughts for the first time, ever.

"Barbara Walters Presents American Scandals" is produced for Investigation Discovery by Lincoln Square Productions with John R. Green serving as executive producer. For Investigation Discovery, Diana Sperrazza is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Kevin Bennett is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President.
