    Investigation Discovery's DANGEROUS PERSUASIONS Tells Terrifyingly True Tales Of People Who Fell Prey To Psychological Manipulation

    All-New Series Premieres Wednesday, January 16 at 10 PM E/P

    SILVER SPRING, Md., Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- People are often scared of what goes bump in the night. But what if the most dangerous monsters were the very same people your life depended on? Following extraordinary and terrifyingly true tales of psychological manipulation, Investigation Discovery's latest series DANGEROUS PERSUASIONS explores everyday people who were brainwashed into making remarkable sacrifices and committing unthinkable acts in the process. Told through intimate, first-person accounts, each hour-long episode details the captivating stories of people who were lured into a web of deceit and lost themselves along the way. False prophets, criminal masterminds, and sociopathic con-artists who prey on the innocent are just some of the Machiavellian architects at the center of these unbelievable and shocking true stories. DANGEROUS PERSUASIONS premieres Wednesday, January 16 at 10 PM E/P on Investigation Discovery.

    "There is nothing more frightening than the thought of people preying on your most valuable asset: your mind," said Henry Schleiff, general manager, Investigation Discovery. "DANGEROUS PERSUASIONS profiles average men and women who were coerced into disturbing situations, proving that - horrifyingly enough - almost anyone can find themselves vulnerable to manipulation."

    The premiere episode of DANGEROUS PERSUASIONS features the story of former Scientologist Nancy Many. As an impressionable college student in 1971, Nancy joined the Church of Scientology in the hopes of making the world a better place. Unbeknownst to her, she would soon become an undercover agent, immersed in espionage activities, waging a secret war against the Church's greatest critics. It was only after joining the organizations' elite inner circle that Nancy finally understood the corruption at the center of Scientology's enormous empire. Little did she know the intimidation and interrogation she would have to endure when her allegiance to the Church came into question. Upon suffering an emotional breakdown, Nancy finally left the Church after living nearly 30 years of her life as a devout Scientologist.

    DANGEROUS PERSUASIONS delves into what happens when a predator warps an individual's very own sense of self. From those seeking answers to life's largest questions to those who fell victim to a powerful stranger, the men and women featured in this new six-part series were all torn from their path in life, becoming trapped in abuse and deception instead. Other episodes include Christine Marie, a single mother who thought she had met the man of her dreams, only to realize that the self-proclaimed Mormon Prophet was anything but, coercing her into giving up her children and sleeping with other men to finance what he claimed was "God's work"; Colleen Stan, a 20-year-old woman who was abducted while hitchhiking and forced into sexual slavery for over seven years; Kerry Noble, a young father who lived happily with his wife in a small Christian community until charismatic community leader Jim Ellison steered him into a world of racism and mass murder; and Susan Hamlin, a wife and mother of four, whose manically controlling and violently abusive husband terrorized and brainwashed her into believing she was at the center of a satanic cult.

    DANGEROUS PERSUASIONS is co-produced for Investigation Discovery by RAW and Entertainment One Television. For RAW, Louise Norman is executive producer with Michael Kot as executive producer for Entertainment One. For Investigation Discovery, Ron Simon is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Kevin Bennett is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager.

    Holy shit! I've lost my mind! I got home at 2:30a last night, looked at the time and calendar and assumed I missed it. D'oh! Three hours of sleep later and I'm all kinds of fuxored. Thanks, DH. :)

    Edit: I've been dealing with a family health emergency and a lack of sleep. This is the first time I've lost track of dates. Sorry, all.

    Edit2: Deleted old post so as not to confuse people.

    Tony Ortega has posted this on Facebook:

    WATCH NANCY MANY'S DOCUDRAMA WITH US TONIGHT! We've provided some more sneak peeks of images from the show, which broadcasts on the ID network at 10 pm tonight. Please join us at the blog as we take it in.

    TONIGHT: Nancy Many’s Story of Scientology Spying and Interrogation on ID at 10 PM

    Tonight is the night we move into a new era: for the first time, a television network is putting on not just a story about some of Scientology’s worst abuses — spying on perceived enemies, degrading treatment of workers, splitting up families — but it’s being dramatized in a 1-hour show that pulls no punches.

    We’ve seen the whole thing and can attest to the high production values and the respect with which the Investigation Discovery network and its new series “Dangerous Persuasions” is treating Nancy Many, who had one of the most remarkable careers in Scientology.

    We have more images from the show you won’t see anywhere else. And tonight, we’ll watch and comment here live — and we hope you join us!

    Not available on Xfinity OnDemand yet. Someone I met told me about this thing called "BitTorrents". No torrents that I can see--not that I condone bittorrents. Bittorrents are bad. :)
