True crime show hosted by the Forrest Gump of journalism
I happen to be a fan of Dominick Dunne's and also an admirer. He is a prolific author, he has survived great tragedy in his life, he has had a fascinating career, and he writes a delicious column for Vanity Fair. What sets Dunne apart is his access to the rich and powerful who try to avoid every other journalist. He knows everyone, and everyone seems to like him and welcome him.
That being said, Dunne is the host of this show, which appears on Arts and Entertainment Network, but all the producers have really done is use his name. He actually offers very little to these stories of murder among the rich and powerful other than to present them. The crimes are portrayed in documentary style - the Menendez brothers, for instance. Many of them will be familiar to the Court TV crowd. Nevertheless, because they're from real life, they manage to hold one's interest, and Dunne combined with A&E give the show that extra boost of class.
