Plot Synopsis

DIABOLICAL is a one-hour docuseries that tells the stories of shockingly devious masterminds, who use their wits and wiles to manipulate others, seduce them, and then try to get away with murder.

In the sneak peek, "Mistress Roulette," Dr. Adam Frasch is living large with a wife and baby. His practice is booming, he loves to spend money on houses, exotic cars, and exotic dancers who become mistresses. Ultimately, the doctor discovers that sowing deceit and jealousy reaps serious consequences. Ten weeks later -- on Thursday, March 15 -- DIABOLICAL had its official series premiere, as Investigation Discovery debuted the "Lying for Love" episode. After a rocky first marriage, Tim Koile has a new bride and a fresh lease on life. But when temptress Cathy Cousin moves next door, the married woman wraps the devoted father around her finger, and has him satisfy her every whim -- no matter how diabolical.
