U.S. network TLC is to air a one-hour special, Dr. G: Inside the Caylee Anthony Case, looking at the controversial death of the two-year-old girl and the subsequent trial of her mother Casey, while sister network Discovery Fit & Health is premiering the latest season of Dr G: Medical Examiner.

Atlas Media’s Dr G. Inside the Caylee Anthony Case, debuting on January 1 at 8 p.m. EST, will see chief medical examiner Jan C. Garavaglia (pictured above) and her team of experts explain the complicated forensics of the Anthony case, the trial of the mother and the controversial verdict.

Garavaglia was the examiner who performed the autopsy on the two-year-old girl and declared Caylee’s death a homicide. Casey was tried for the first degree murder of Caylee and acquitted, but was convicted of misdemeanor counts of lying to police officers. The special repeats on Discovery Fit & Health on January 6 at 10 p.m. EST.

“Dr. G was intimately involved in the Caylee Anthony case from the very beginning, and knows the scientific evidence inside and out,” said Amy Winter, general manager of TLC. “This special provides a forum for Dr. G and her team of experts to present this information in its entirety for the first time.”

A week before the TLC special, Discovery Fit & Health is debuting the latest season of Dr. G: Medical Examiner, on December 30 at 10 p.m. EST. The six-part, one-hour season will see Dr. G at work in her morgue in Florida seeking out the truth behind victims’ shocking or suspicious deaths. That series is also produced by Atlas Media.
