Chris Hanson Returns to TV

Former "Dateline NBC" correspondent Chris Hansen, best known for his provocative hidden camera investigation series "To Catch A Predator," is returning to television.

Hanson left NBC after he was caught having an affair.

Now, he returns on the Discovery Channel to a true crime show. Hansen will host a six-part series called "Killer Instinct with Chris Hansen."

Debuting this summer, the series will send Hansen out in the field to provide in-depth reporting on what Investigation Discovery calls “some of America’s most horrific crimes.”

In a statement, Henry Schlieff, group president of Investigation Discovery, described the show as “an investigative newsmagazine that will draw the viewer in and make them feel as if they are right there in the moment.” 

Hanson has been off the air since August 2013, when NBC cut their ties with him.
