EXCLUSIVE: Nancy Grace is up front In the valley of sin, a real-crime docu-series for Fox Nation that delves into a savage history of a small town in Washington a quarter of a century ago, Deadline has learned. The first part will bow on Sunday, May 9, and the other five episodes will air daily until May 14. Watch the trailer above.
Fox confirmed the new project, which will explore the terrible allegations of child abuse in the sleepy town of Wenatchee, WA. In 1995, the healthy “apple capital of the world” was rocked by appalling allegations that city adults ran a child sex trafficking ring dubbed “The Circle,” which abused over 60 children in various locations. from the city. After dozens of arrests, over 29,000 counts of child abuse and 1,000 combined hours of jail time, the truth has emerged: none of this ever happened.
Each episode of In the valley of sin will tell the story of an individual family affected by the misrepresentation and the consequences that continue to haunt them to this day. Viewers will wonder how such a thing could happen and if we are still vulnerable to mistakes in this grave.
“The justice system is as strong as its weakest link in every case,” Grace said in a statement to Deadline. “Here, the weak ties have given rise to a parody.”
Grace signed a new deal with Fox Nation in March and welcomes America’s Most Wanted Overtime for Fox News’ direct-to-consumer on-demand streaming service. She will also discuss the Wenatchee affair in her daily program. Crime Stories with Nancy Grace.
