U.S. cable net Investigation Discovery is set to celebrate Thanksgiving in its own unique way with the premiere of Wives with Knives on November 23, and a lead-in from returning series Facing Evil with Candice Delong.

Wives with Knives is hosted by criminologist and behavioral analyst Dr. Casey Jordan, who sits down with women who have stabbed their significant others. The premiere episode airs at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

The six-part series, produced by Indigo Films, examines what led each wife to stab their partners, with stories including a couple that married after a whirlwind courtship and wound up in a jealousy-fueled fight.

Facing Evil with Candice Delong sees the former FBI criminal profiler going into prisons to speak with two convicted murderers, women who still maintain their innocence.

The back-to-back episodes, produced by Beyond Entertainment, begin at 8 p.m. EST/PST on November 23.

“For better or for worse, the women featured on Wives with Knives literally cut the men out of their lives,” said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery. “Throughout Investigation Discovery’s storied programming past, we’ve profiled liars, murderers, convicts, and thieves, but never have we focused on a specific method like using cutlery to teach your husband a lesson.”
