Travel Channel to Premiere Marcus Sakey's Hidden City on December 5th, 2011

Travel Channel

This past May, crime novelist Marcus Sakey announced that he would be writing and hosting a new series for the Travel Channel titled Hidden City. "In it I visit different places and explore the crimes that helped define them," he says. "Basically, my feeling is that if you only see the tourist districts, Seattle is the same as Shanghai. The real stories are in the shadows—and shadowy stories are my business."

Today, the Travel Channel announced a premiere date for the series: Monday, December 5th at 10 PM (ET/PT).

The first city to be visited is Sakey's home town of Chicago, where viewers will meet America’s first—and maybe worst—serial killer, H. H. Holmes; walk in the footsteps of legendary gangster, John Dillinger; and dig into the 1968 DNC riots. Upcoming episodes will include Anchorage, Atlanta, Austin, Boston, the Florida Keys, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C.
