"Surviving Evil" (TV show), formerly known as "I Survived Evil," is a reality series on Investigation Discovery that is hosted by Charisma Carpenter, best known for her role as Cordelia Chase on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and its spin-off "Angel." The show features dramatically compelling and emotional stories of victims who fought back against their attackers and, against amazing odds, survived.

Carpenter is the survivor of a real-life incident that she endured more than 20 years ago. The actress and two friends were swimming at San Diego's Torrey Pines State Beach in 1991 when they were violently attacked by an armed, rogue police officer. Carpenter fought for her survival after being held at gunpoint, but her two friends were both shot by the attacker and seriously wounded. The police officer was sentenced to 56 years in prison for the attacks in addition to a series of rapes and robberies.

"Surviving Evil" is produced by Cineflix for Investigation Discovery. For Cineflix, Nick Godwin and Simon Lloyd are executive producers. For Investigation Discovery, Pamela Deutsch is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager.
