TLC and ID Partner to Present CHANDRA LEVY: AN AMERICAN MURDER MYSTERY, 9/4
On May 1, 2001, 24-year-old Chandra Levy left her Washington, D.C., apartment and vanished without a trace. Police feverishly scoured the city for clues about the missing Capitol Hill intern's whereabouts, but a powerful man hampered their search - Chandra's alleged lover, U.S. Congressman Gary Condit. Now, TLC and Investigation Discovery (ID) delve into the sex, lies and SCANDAL behind one of our nation's most salacious crimes with the premiere of CHANDRA LEVY: AN AMERICAN MURDER MYSTERY. The latest installment of the hit AMERICAN MURDER MYSTERY franchise explores the seedy underbelly of the D.C. elite that was exposed during the harrowing search for justice. Presented in partnership with American Media, Inc., Jupiter Entertainment, and Weinstein Television, the three-hour special event CHANDRA LEVY: AN AMERICAN MURDER MYSTERY premieres Monday, September 4 at 8/7c on TLC, with an exclusive early premiere available on ID's TV Everywhere platform, ID GO, beginning Sunday, August 27.
From the team that brought viewers the record-breaking Investigation Discovery hits JONBENET: AN AMERICAN MURDER MYSTERY and CASEY ANTHONY: AN AMERICAN MURDER MYSTERY, CHANDRA LEVY is a comprehensive, unabridged look at the case that rocked Washington, D.C., from top to bottom. From the mysterious circumstances of Chandra's disappearance to the media frenzy over her alleged affair to the eventual arrest and charging of a surprise suspect - Ingmar Guandique - the special transports viewers back to the forefront of the national search for answers about what really happened to Chandra.
"The recent deportation of Ingmar Guandique closed yet another chapter in the Chandra Levy case - but the book is by far finished," said Dylan Howard, Executive Producer and Chief Content Officer of American Media, Inc. "Editors and investigators of AMI titles have delivered world-class reporting on this case for more than two decades, and we are delighted to bring our storytelling to life for TLC and Investigation Discovery in this latest installment of our compelling AMERICAN MURDER Mystery franchise."
CHANDRA LEVY: AN AMERICAN MURDER MYSTERY features new and exclusive interviews with those closest to the case - including a never-before-seen interview with Ingmar Guandique, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador who was initially charged with Chandra's murder in 2001 but has since been cleared as a suspect. Other notable interviews include original commentary from Chandra's parents, Susan and Robert Levy; the Levy family's former private investigator, Joe McCann; an exclusive with Gary Condit's former bodyguard, driver and friend, Vince Flammini; as well detectives who investigated the case and journalists who covered it throughout.
