Daytime talk show host Wendy Williams has been tapped to produce and host a new series for Investigation Discovery titled Death by Gossip With Wendy Williams, the network announced.

The six-episode series will feature re-enactments of real-life crimes that were fueled by rumors and lies.

“There’s nobody better than the daring doyenne of daytime, Wendy Williams, to offer this cautionary tale to those who indulge in chatter and innuendo,” said Schleiff, group president of Discovery Networks. “Death by Gossip proves that sticks and stones may break your bones…but words can really kill you.”

“It’s no rumor … I’m obsessed with ID to the point that it keeps me up at night,” Williams said in a statement. “I couldn’t be happier to host and executive producer my own project on one of my favorite networks and showcase my brand of talk, which won’t get you killed, but it will kill in the ratings!”

The media maven is best known for her syndicated talk show The Wendy Williams Show, which was just renewed through 2017.

Death by Gossip With Wendy Williams premieres this fall.
