20/20 September 29 2023: “Happily Never After”
ABC News’ award-winning program “20/20” returns for its 46 th season on ABC, FRIDAY, SEPT. 29 (9:01-11:00 p.m. EDT),with Peabody and Emmy®-Award winning journalist Deborah Roberts joining David Muir as co-anchors of Friday’s No. 1 newsmagazine across the board. During her nearly 30 years at ABC News, Roberts has covered everything from the most shocking crime cases gripping the nation to profiles of political figures and more. Muir is an Emmy Award-winning journalist, anchor and managing editor of “World News Tonight,” who has reported from international hot spots and interviewed some of the biggest newsmakers around the world.
The two-hour season premiere “Happily Never After” features the shocking story of the October 2020 murder of Dallas-based American Airlines director Jamie Faith. Faith was shot seven times by a masked gunman at close range in front of his wife, Jennifer, while taking their dog on a daily morning walk. At first, authorities have little evidence to go on other than a mysterious black pickup truck fleeing the scene. Was it a robbery gone wrong, an act of revenge, or could there be something even more sinister at play? In a case that shocked even the most seasoned detectives, the episode follows the investigation uncovering a double life, a grieving widow with something to hide, and one big lie that no one saw coming. “GMA3” co-anchor and ABC News correspondent Eva Pilgrim reports. “20/20” premieres FRIDAY, SEPT. 29 (9:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC, and streams next day on Hulu .
