U.S. cable network Investigation Discovery (ID) has added Tabloid to its lineup, featuring bizarre stories of betrayal and revenge, and hosted by The Jerry Springer Show‘s titular star.

Produced by Radley Studios and Espiritus Productions, Tabloid is a 10 x one-hour weekly series that unearths the craziest headlines in the supermarket tabloids, and tells their story. It will premiere on ID in the first quarter of 2014.

“There really was no other choice for this series other than the king of daytime talk himself, Jerry Springer, to complement ID’s incredible stories of revenge, betrayal and real-life drama,” said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of ID.

“The thing I like best about television is the opportunity to tell stories… stories that cover the entire range of human experiences and emotions,” added Springer. “Tabloid gives me another chance to do just that, and I can’t wait to get started.”
