Chatter, innuendo and good ol' fashioned gossip are staples of Wendy Williams' nationally syndicated talk show, making it a perfect proving ground for her to host a crime series on Investigation Discovery. The daring diva of daytime loves a little dish now and then, but "Death by Gossip" offers cautionary tales to those who indulge in this guilty pleasure. The series uncovers actual crimes spurred by rumors and half-truths that lead to betrayal and even murder, showing that dishing the dirt can be a game without winners. So beware of offices, gyms, playgrounds and nosey neighborhoods -- the grapevine might strangle the most unsuspecting prattler.

Actual murder cases from the 1950s and '60s get sleek, cinematic treatment in this series, transporting viewers back to a pre-forensics era when sometimes it was more about how suspects looked than what they did that determined guilt.

Artfully crafted re-creations play out like period thrillers, staying true to fashions and styles, while spotlighting cultural taboos and social norms surrounding each case.
