    The first FOX "special" episode is 10/29 at 8pm. Lifetime doesn't even list it on their website yet.

    hmmm, the article says sometime in the end of this year. We are getting pretty close to that. Hope there is not a fly in the ointment.

    I haven't found an article newer than the announcements (Sept 6-8) about it. The announcements all say Lifetime will "start producing episodes later this year". That could mean that they'll start production but not necessarily airing them yet.

    For what it's worth Wikipedia says they'll start in 2012.

    John hasn't been in here since the announcement. My guess he's busy working on the show.

    Too bad AMW can't air the newest prison escape here in Vero, this is just the fodder that show loved. Local bad guys.
    The Oct 29th Fox 2 hour special is still a go, set the DVR already.

    Damn, I forgot to add it. But for anyone that did the same thing. I just went back to add the series link and found that Lifetime is rerunning all the episodes so far. So you can file through them and pick up the dates you missed.
    The guide data is not specific enough to do it on its own, so you have to look at the original air dates.
    Makes it nice as well because it can be low on the priority list in case there is a conflict with new episodes.

    I have noticed the long hiatus on Lifetime. But I was hopeful.

    Lifetime really didn't promote the show very well.

    John has big things in store.

    They really screwed the pooch all around on Lifetime.
    They would broadcast reruns all around the new show of the week and had bad guide data. So unless you really looked hard and did your research, you had no idea if you were watching a current show or a rerun. I am sure my dvr missed a few because of the guide data.

    That's good to hear. Let me know when it gets close and I will write in to the Doc's to get it some love there.

    Keep it on the local channels where people have easy access to watch, as not everyone have those crime related channels, but then again they can add it those channels as well.

    I'll keep you posted. No big rumblings around the office just yet, only minor tremors.
