Where Murder Lies 2

Everyone is hiding something.

It may be a harmless secret, or it might be something far more serious: a terrible betrayal of trust or a shocking indiscretion.

Some of these come out over time, while others stay hidden forever.

But sometimes, an event is so horrific, so cataclysmic, that everyone's truths are laid bare.

Where Murder Lies gradually exposes murder investigations one truth after another, revealing the sinister underbelly beneath seemingly placid communities.

In the Season 2 premiere, "Monster of Deception": A single mother and her three young children are brutally murdered inside their Tallahassee home, sending shockwaves throughout the community.

As investigators search for a killer, they are shocked to uncover a real-life monster hiding in plain sight.

Junkyard Empire 2

When it comes to father son bonding, Bobby and Andy Cohen know a thing or two.

For decades they've managed a lucrative junkyard business while managing not to let their old school versus new school ways permanently scrap their relationship.

Having defied the odds the Cohens are back, giving another glimpse into their hot-blooded professional lives.

Cohen Recycling just outside Washington, D.C. cycles through more than one million pounds of twisted metal and shredded steal every year.

Each Junkyard Empire episode finds Andy, a jack of all trades with a keen eye for seeing a high-priced payoff in automotive rubble, juggling the demands of the family junkyard with managing his own automotive service shop and used car dealership.

If that weren't enough to fill his days, Bobby, who started the junkyard nearly 50 years ago, always has conflicting opinions about how Andy runs things.

Working with his dad isn't always easy and tensions overheat when Bobby's easy going ways depart from Andy's high-pressure risk taking style.

But when the sun sets on the yard each day Andy and Bobby know how to use every greasy part, banged up car or overrun engine to keep the family empire thriving.

Where most see trash the Cohens see cash and Season 2 is no exception, with incredible vehicle transformations ranging from a 1978 Rolls Royce turned hot rod, to an ambitious paintball tank made from a beat up Argo ATV.

The guys also tackle an iconic build featuring legendary Hot Wheels designer Larry Wood who asks them to create a life-size replica of one of his most famous Hot Wheels ever.

In the Season 2 premiere, "A New Day, A New Dollar": Andy weeds out a handful of clunkers until he finds his next project, a Mercedes SL55 AMG he spots at auction.

Battling with Bobby about why he bought the car when they manage more than 2,500 cars in the junkyard, Andy pushes forward knowing sometimes you need to spend money to make money.

However, he quickly learns this simple flip has turned into a renovation nightmare that may not be worth the manpower or money to turn it around.
