On a day that’s meant to celebrate love and romance, true crime network Investigation Discovery is taking a look at a love story gone wrong.
The two-part special He Lied About Everything, which premieres tonight (Feb. 14) at 8 p.m. ET/PT, spotlights the relationship between investigative news producer Benita Alexander and world-renowned surgeon Paolo Macchiarini (pictured, right).
While the pair’s relationship began as picture perfect, it devolved into a nightmare filled with deceit and destruction as lies surrounding Macchiarini’s business and personal life begin to surface.
He Lied About Everything is produced for Investigation Discovery by Efran Films. For Efran Films, Shawn Efran and Alexander are executive producers. For ID, Pamela Deutsch is executive producer.

There are several reasons to get excited about 2018. For one, it’s not 2017, which we all can agree has been an absolute dumpster fire. There’s also Netflix’s upcoming slate of original movies and TV shows, which is absolutely stacked. From intriguing sci-fi films to reboots and a slew of comedy specials, Netflix is coming for your free time in 2018—and it will probably get it. (I’m already canceling my plans for January, February, and March, TBH.)
Here’s every original title coming to Netflix in 2018:

At the risk of hyperbole, we are here to tell you what the hottest new show of 2018 will be. Just as The People vs. O.J. Simpson gripped audiences, critics, and awards bodies alike with its smart, vivid take on the O.J. trial, the second season of Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story anthology series is shaping up to be a ravishing, instantly-addictive blend of high fashion and true crime. Based on the book Vulgar Favors by Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth, the show chronicles the events surrounding the murder of designer Gianni Versace, who was shot dead on the steps of his Miami Beach home in 1997.
The show’s producers appeared alongside cast members Edgar Ramirez, Ricky Martin, and Darren Criss—who play Versace, his partner, and his killer, respectively—to take reporters’ questions at the TCA Press Tour. Here, 11 things you need to know about The Assassination of

Both Landgraf and Louis C.K. confirmed that there are currently no plans for another season of Louie. However, the comedian revealed that if he did go back to the show, it would be a very different season. “I don’t think the version of Louie that was on FX, I don’t think I’ll do that exact version again because I just haven’t been that guy for a while with the stained black T shirt and the two kids. They are older now, and I’m an older dad,” he said.
At the moment, Louis C.K. says he’s more focused on the shows he’s making for FX, particularly Season 2 of Pamela Adlon’s Better Things. “I really love making TV, and right now, for me, I’m involved with her show, and I think it’s the best show on TV,” he said. “I think she’s the best director on TV, and
