Grace, the host of Fox Nation’s “Crime Stories with Nancy Grace, said the overtime series will “dig even deeper” into the cases and hopefully bring fugitives to justice sooner. Grace will analyze the cases with victims’ family members, as well as expert criminal investigators.
“America’s Most Wanted” will be hosted by veteran journalist Elizabeth Vargas, who hosted ABC’s “20/20,” “World News Tonight” and “Good Morning America.”
“America’s Most Wanted” has helped capture nearly 1,200 criminals, including 17 on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list. “America’s Most Wanted” also has helped reunite more than 40 missing children with their families.
In the new season of America’s Most Wanted,” Vargas will speak with a team of experts including those connected to the FBI, U.S. Marshals Office and Secret Service.
The new series will build on its original format, in which crimes are reenacted, but will use new state-of-the-art crime-fighting technology, such as augmented reality and 3-D life-size avatars that will illustrate what suspects might look like at present. The show will also feature pinpoint map-tracking that will take the audience on the trail of suspects, and social media will connect viewers to the “America’s Most Wanted” team at a lightning-fast speed.
