PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES: CULTS returns for a second season on Investigation Discovery to continue its exploration into the terrifying world of cults. Anchored by PEOPLE’s true crime editorial team, each episode follows one infamous cult from its creation, as power-hungry cult leaders use manipulation, sex and fear mongering to control and dominate their followers into blind loyalty. From “Children of God” to the Manson family, PEOPLE’s award-winning journalists are in the field exposing the abusive rituals and brutal conditions that exist within these organizations. The team speaks exclusively to survivors who narrowly escaped and are attempting to rebuild their lives outside the confines of these rigid and criminal organizations.
Senior Editor Alicia Dennis has worked throughout People’s sections for more than 15 years, earning multiple editorial awards for reporting and breaking news coverage. As People’s senior editor of crime, Dennis oversees a team of investigative reporters who delve into crime stories around the country, bringing millions of readers (in addition to viewers on ID’s People Magazine Investigates) compelling accounts of mystery. Intrigue, and insight from victims and their families.
