Unlikely Friends Television Premiere on Investigation Discovery


Could you forgive your own son’s killer? It’s an unimaginable question to ask, but one that countless families are unfortunately faced with every day. In a special world television premiere of the critically acclaimed documentary UNLIKELY FRIENDS, by filmmaker Leslie Neale, Investigation Discovery takes an unflinching look at the intricacies of forgiveness under the most extreme and brutal circumstances. Narrated by actor, activist, and life-long opponent of the death penalty, Mike Farrell (M*A*S*H), the one-hour special explores surprising relationships that have blossomed out of violent situations.
