Mistress, murderer, victim, spouse? Thrill-seekers will find them all in Investigation Discovery's interactive online experience launching today, IsItADeadlyAffair.com. This virtual event engages participants in the intricacies of an illicit affair as they unravel in real-time the "hows" and "whys" behind one troubled three-way. With ID unleashing clues among multiple online platforms via videos, graphics, micro-sites, and social media, fans become investigators as they are led through a maze of broken faith and betrayal.
With Susan Lucci as a guide, participants are able to knock down closed bedroom doors, navigate secret trysts, and lay bare salacious liaisons as they follow the twists and turns of the fictional love triangle. The experience has been quietly introduced in the DEADLY AFFAIRS (#DeadlyAffairs) on-air promo, and fans can go online now to IsItADeadlyAffair.com to start unraveling the mystery. But things might not always be as they seem, and the final piece to the puzzle will be unveiled during the season premiere of DEADLY AFFAIRS on September 8 at 10 PM (E/P) on Investigation Discovery.
"This transmedia campaign is the company's first foray into such highly interactive storytelling within a digitally-powered media landscape, and with an audience that craves mystery and suspense stories, Investigation Discovery is excited to lead the charge," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery. "We'll take our fans down the rabbit hole with an immersive virtual experience that transcends beyond the television screen, adding another layer of lurid love affairs turned crimes of passion that ID does so well."
In addition to the social media sites, superfans of Investigation Discovery, the self-proclaimed IDAddicts, will fuel the conversation about the experience, while InvestigationDiscovery.com will remain the home for all non-fiction content related to DEADLY AFFAIRS.
