Two-time Emmy Award-winner William Shatner takes an in-depth look at what happens when people are tragically or infamously transformed from unknown citizens into household names overnight. Stories like those of Jessica Lynch, Bernhard Goetz and the DC Sniper victims put previously unknown names on the mind of every American, and Shatner intends to find out how the lives of all those directly affected by these cases have changed forever since becoming front-page news. Aftermath with William Shatner takes viewers back to these dramatic events through exclusive access to the newsmakers at the heart of each case – the heroes, villains, perpetrators (when possible), victims, family members, and law enforcement officials – to dig deep into their stories and separate the fact from the fiction. In every sixty-minute episode, new and often surprising information emerges, not only about these events themselves but about how people’s lives have changed in the years since they made headlines. Stories will include some of the biggest breaking news stories of the last two decades including Jessica Lynch, the DC Sniper victims, the Unabomber, Bernhard Goetz, Mary Kay Letourneau, and the Weaver Family of Ruby Ridge.
