"Southern Fried Homicide" is a reality series that airs on Investigation Discovery.

Across the Deep South, heat, humidity and darn good hiding places provide a perfect backdrop for dark, despicable deeds. This series transports viewers into the steamy, Southern subculture whose lifestyles and charming drawls are captivating viewers — and covering up crimes. Against a backdrop of Southern hospitality, etiquette, and traditional values, evil creeps in like vines on a time-honored plantation. This series proves that ugliness lurks behind Southern beauty when cracks in moral society give way to cold-blooded murder. Actress Shanna Forrestall, a native belle of Louisiana, serves as the gatekeeper to these salacious stories that give another meaning to things that "go south."

The series probes the juiciest stories from down in the Bible Belt, from the Carolinas to Louisiana and Tennessee. The premiere episode profiles an old adage in the south: families are a bit like fudge — mostly sweet, but with a few nuts. After pedigreed Southern belle Susie Newsom's marriage fails, sweet Susie spirals and starts to have an affair ... with her disturbed first cousin. When the rest of the family isn't exactly thrilled with the kissing cousins, their scandalous relationship ends with nine family members dead, spanning from Kentucky to North Carolina.

"Southern Fried Homicide" is produced by Sirens Media with Valerie Haselton as executive producer, with Diana Sperrazza as executive producer with Investigation Discovery. Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Kevin Bennett is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager of Investigation Discovery.
