Two Shallow Graves

Channel: Investigation Discovery (DStv 171 / StarSat 223)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: True Crime, Documentary Series

Two Shallow Graves

In 2010, Joseph McStay, his wife Summer, and their two young sons disappeared without a trace.

Three years later, the nationwide search for answers in their disappearance came to a heartbreaking close when the family's bodies were found in the middle of the California desert in two shallow graves.

In 2019, Charles "Chase" Merritt, Joseph McStay's friend and business associate, went on trial for the family's murder.

Despite incriminating evidence presented by the prosecution, Merritt maintains his innocence - begging the question, did Merritt really kill the McStay family?

Two Shallow Graves provides an enthralling look into Merritt's explosive murder trial via unparalleled access to both the defence and prosecution teams, shedding new light on the controversial case.

When Merritt's trial began in 2019, the prosecution thought they had an airtight case to prove Merritt's guilt: compelling evidence linking him to the crime including bank records, cell phone activity, and DNA placing Merritt in the McStay's car.

However, as the trial unfolded Merritt maintained his innocence and his defence team put forth the possibility that the authorities had apprehended the wrong man... and the McStay family's killer remained free.

Divisive and heartbreaking, the proceedings of Merritt's trial highlighted a haunting reality: despite Merritt's arrest, so many troubling questions around the McStay family murders still linger unanswered.

With unprecedented, multi-camera access to the entirety of the trial and personal, never-before-seen footage of Merritt and his defence team strategising during the proceedings, Two Shallow Graves definitively unlocks a new perspective on the trial and murder case that captivated the attention of the nation.

Featuring exclusive interviews with Merritt, his family, and his defence lawyers, as well as the prosecution, investigators, key figures in the case, and the McStay's family and friends, the series gives insight into Merritt's defence and the prosecutions' evidence, presenting a seven-part look into a tragic mystery that is still unfolding.

In the series premiere, "Vanished": The fate of the missing McStay family remains a mystery for three years until their bodies surface in two shallow graves in the desert.

Prosecutors accuse Chase Merritt of the crime, and the trial begins with each side passionately presenting their case.

Genre: Police Procedural, Drama

Station 19 5

In Seattle, all firefighters are also trained EMTs and the crew at Station 19 is second to none.

Working in 24-hour shifts, these professionals spend so much time together that they build relationships unlike any others.

Practically raised at the station, Andy Herrera is a confident, badass firefighter who is also the daughter of Captain Pruitt, the formidable head of the firehouse.

Captain Pruitt was Andy's primary inspiration to become a firefighter, and is a mentor to both Andy and Jack Gibson, the lieutenant at Station 19.

Passionate and energetic, Jack is fearless — just the kind of guy you want coming to your rescue.

While Jack is fearless, Andy plays by the rules — but when these two are together, sparks fly and opposites attract.

Andy's best friend and confidant is Maya Bishop.

A former Olympic athlete, Maya has an innate competitive nature that pushes her to be the best firefighter in the house.

Meanwhile, charming Dean Miller is nothing short of passionate and jumps at the chance to be a hero.

He is also very aware of the appeal of a firefighter in uniform and is not afraid to use that to get a date or two with the ladies.

Travis Montgomery is the heart of the station, keeping everyone on track and helping his fellow team members grow.

After a traumatic event, he is also a stickler for following the rules and making sure the newbies stay in line.

As the youngest member of the team, Victoria "Vic" Hughes is eager to prove herself as a crucial part of the Station 19 family.

She often tends to meddle where she doesn't belong but rarely allows others insight into her personal life.

Rounding out the firehouse, the newest addition to Station 19 is rookie Ben Warren.

Ben traded in his scalpel for a fresh start as a firefighter but has a hard time realising that emergencies in the field are vastly different than those at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.

While it's a shock becoming the newbie again, he's learning from the best and is up to the challenge.

The team also works closely with Seattle PD and often has run-ins with one of Andy's oldest friends (and former high school flame), Ryan Tanner.

After a traumatic event brings Andy and Ryan closer, it's impossible not to see the attraction.

In the Season 5 premiere, "Phoenix from the Flame": Relationships are challenged at Station 19 following Sullivan's actions at Maya and Carina's wedding, putting his marriage with Andy to the test.

Dean comes to terms with his feelings for Vic, while Travis rekindles an old flame.

The annual Phoenix Festival brings out some reckless behaviour in some of Seattle's citizens, challenging the teams at Station 19 and Grey Sloan Memorial.

Tia Mowry at Home 2

Tia Mowry lives a busy life balancing between being a full-time wife, mother, and working actress.

Even with her hectic schedule, she finds time for her passion and what she loves most - cooking and preparing delicious meals to share with her family and friends.

Whether she is throwing a birthday party for her son, a reunion dinner party for her castmates, a red carpet viewing party with friends, or hosting her family for the holidays, Tia's homemade meals are sure to please.

Over the course of the 13 half-hour long episodes, Tia prepares easy-to-make, flavour-packed recipes with a side of entertainment and laughter.

In one episode, Tia has the perfect food day from start to finish.

First, she kicks-off the day with a healthy green juice and a Greek frittata full of fresh vegetables.

For lunch she heads to one of her favourite places - Stout Burgers & Beers - where she meets the chef and learns the secrets to their signature specialty dishes that inspire Tia with a great idea for dinner.

To end the day right, Tia makes grilled flank steak wrapped asparagus to share with her friend, actress Natasha Marc.

In another episode, Tia's husband, Cory Hardrict, joins her in the kitchen.

They both love to cook and are both incredibly competitive, so they decide to have a cook-off to finally settle once and for all who the master of the kitchen truly is.

To test their skills they must both make entrées using shrimp as the main ingredient, and then they must whip up a decadent dessert using bananas.

The stakes are high as the losing chef will have to do dishes for a week.

May the best chef win.
