QUEEN OF METH
Three-Part Special Airing back to back on Friday, November 26 starting at 9/8c
Queen of Meth takes viewers on a deeply personal journey unraveling how one of America’s most infamous, unexpected drug lords, Lori Arnold, turned addiction into a criminal enterprise. Arnold takes viewers back to the scene of the crime in her hometown of Ottumwa, Iowa where for six years, she ran a sprawling, multi-state meth empire and played a key role in the start of the Midwest’s methamphetamine epidemic. Over the course of three-parts, Arnold confronts her past by visiting old haunts and rehashing memories with her friends and family, including her famous brother Tom Arnold. Lori and Tom’s vivid recollections reveal what led her down a drug-riddled path and towards finding herself at the helm of a multi-million dollar drug empire.
WHEN PHILIP MET MISSY
Two-Hour Special Airing on Saturday, November 27 starting at 9/8c
When longtime Hartville, Ohio resident Philip Snider’s wife Roberta goes missing, the small town swirls with gossip that he may have had a hand in her sudden disappearance. However, with no evidence to prove it, the suspicion subsides – that is until Philip strikes up an unusual friendship with a young, new resident named Missy. Over two intense, fast paced hours WHEN PHILIP MET MISSY chronicles the dark side of a love story, beginning with a seemingly innocent meet-cute that spirals into something more sinister: revealing twisted secrets and a murder for hire plot, it then becomes a race against the clock for local authorities to expose Philip for who he truly is. Featuring an abundance of real-life footage and archival content, viewers will be on the edge of their seats to find out what truly happened in this jaw-dropping case.
Three-Part Special Airing Back to Back on Sunday, November 28 at 9/8c
In a gripping special, Pagan motorcycle gang snitch Andrew “Chef” Glick revels every dark detail that led to the 2021 murder of local New Jersey radio host April Kauffman as a tattoo artist covers up his club tattoo that was mean to be a symbol of undying loyalty. Over the course of three parts, Doctor’s Orders crashes into the wild world of motorcycle gangs – one that created an underground Oxycontin ring which spiraled into a murder-for-hire plot, all orchestrated by a wealthy husband who believe he was too powerful to get caught. Glick takes viewers through the fatally twisted tale of greed, murder and betrayal, set against the backdrop of America’s opioId epidemic.
