Jul. 30, 2015
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Barbara Walters is taking a walk down memory lane with a TV series revisiting big news stories she covered in her career.
The Investigation Discovery channel said Thursday that "Barbara Walters Presents American Scandals" will debut Nov. 2.
The hour-long episodes focus on events ranging from political misbehavior to crime, and will include previous interviews conducted by Walters along with new material, the channel told a TV critics meeting.
The TV newswoman will look back at televangelist Jim Bakker's sex scandal, the murder of celebrity diet doctor Herman Tarnower, the Menendez family killings and a switched-at-birth mystery.
Walters conducts a rare interview with the wife of Mark David Chapman about his killing of John Lennon, the channel said.
Further episodes are planned, Investigation Discovery said.
In a statement, Walters said the years-old scandals remain enormously interesting and continue to affect the lives of people who were involved.
