Capitalizing on the recent success of ABC’s freshman drama Revenge, the network has decided to air a limited series titled Revenge For Real. Produced by ABC News, this two-part series will air in place of Revenge on Wednesday March 7 and 17 at 10:00 p.m. EST.
Here’s the description for the March 7 episode, appropriately titled “Murder in the Hamptons”: A rich, handsome, philandering husband, his scorned trophy wife and her boyfriend, an electrician from the wrong side of the tracks… a love triangle seemingly made for Hollywood. But this was not Hollywood, rather a real life Hamptons revenge story. When millionaire Ted Ammon was brutally murdered in the bedroom of his East Hampton mansion in 2001, suspicion fell on his wife, Generosa, and her boyfriend, Long Island electrician Danny Pelosi ó who was eventually convicted of the crime. But now, from behind bars, Pelosi is telling Cynthia McFadden what he says is the real truth of what happened that night. It is a twist to the sensational Hamptons murder case that casts new light on members of New York’s high society.
Don’t miss Revenge for Real beginning on March 7. In the meantime, a new episode of Revenge will air tonight at 10:00 p.m. EST on ABC. Watch a preview for the episode.
