American commercial broadcast network CBS is prepping two true-crime series, produced in-house, and slated to air this summer.

Produced by CBS Television Studios, Whistleblower delves into the real-life stories of people who put everything on the line to shed light on illegal and often dangerous wrongdoings of corporations against American citizens.

Hosted by attorney Alex Ferrer, a former judge and police officer, each episode features a case in which ordinary people risk their careers, their families and even their lives to ensure others are not harmed or killed by corporate greed.

The premiere episode features cases concerning pediatric dental chain Kool Smiles and the pharmaceutical giant Bristol-Myers Squibb.

Emmy Award winner Susan Zirinsky serves as senior executive producer, while Alex Ferrer and Ted Eccles serve as executive producers.

Whistleblower premieres July 13 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Meanwhile, CBS’s Pink Collar Crimes looks at a growing crime wave in the U.S., involving women such as country club chairwomen or PTA members who wind up doing time for assorted felons. Prosecutor, author and television correspondent, Marcia Clark (pictured) offers up analysis and insight in each episode.

The series premiere episode features a “soccer mom” who robs banks in her red mini-van.

Jon Kroll and Sharon Liese serve as executive producers for CBS Television Studios.

Pink Collar Crimes debuts July 28 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
