"Nothing Personal" (Investigation Discovery TV show) plunges into the sinister undertaking of contract killings. The motive in murder-for-hire plots may vary from case to case, but for the hired hit man it's always business as usual. Investigation Discovery's series "Nothing Personal" is about mafia disloyalties, romantic infidelities, stale friendships and the trio of characters at their center: the conniving "client," the professional murderer, and the victim who never saw it coming.

Each one-hour episode is hosted by true crime aficionado Steve Schirripa, whose mobster character Bobby Baccalieri was famously whacked on "The Sopranos." Schirripa, who grew up on the fringes of the mob, had schoolmates who became hit men or, unfortunately, succumbed to the work of hit men. Seamlessly woven into the presentation of each story, Schirripa's commentary exposes viewers to an insider's view of the business of crime. Why did the victims have contracts on their lives? Who wanted them dead? And how did the hit men carry out their gruesome assignments? ID's audiences will meet the key players in each story and experience every side of the tale before learning how their relationships fatefully resulted in murder-for-hire.

"Nothing Personal" also covers romantic relationships that go bad, leaving one partner on the wrong end of a deadly plot. One of the more bizarre is the story of Mary Ellen Samuels, who hires a hit man to take out her husband. However, when her hit man starts stepping out of line, she doesn't go to the local business bureau; she hires another hit man to snuff out the first one. Ripe with twists and turns, each episode of "Nothing Personal" traces the motivation and planning, which leads people to resorting to murder-for-hire.

"Nothing Personal" is a Cineflix (NP) Inc. Production for Investigation Discovery with Simon Lloyd and Steve Schirripa as executive producers. For Investigation Discovery, Diana Sperrazza is executive producer, Sara Kozak is vice president of production and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager.
