FOX Business Network (FBN) will debut Strange Inheritance, the new primetime story-driven reality series hosted by Jamie Colby, on Monday, January 26th at 9:00 PM/ET, announced Bill Shine, Senior Executive Vice President, FBN and FOX News Channel (FNC).
The series, which examines real-life stories of unconventional inheritances, will appear Monday-Thursdays at 9PM/ET, with new episodes debuting every Monday and Tuesday. In addition, FBN will air Strange Inheritance Unpacked, a behind-the-scenes look at how each story unfolded, every Wednesday and Thursday at 9:30PM/ET. The launch shifts The Independents hosted by Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery to 10:00PM/ET weekdays, with Stossel, hosted by John Stossel, moving to Fridays at 9:00 PM/ET. CAVUTO, anchored by Neil Cavuto will remain at 8:00PM/ET.
In making the announcement, Shine said, “We’re excited to bring viewers an entertaining and informative program that delves into the emotional and financially extraordinary situation of inheritance.”
Each evening, two half-hour episodes will air back-to-back featuring Colby as she explores a range of unusual circumstances from a family trying to keep a 900-acre bug museum in business to the discovery of a rare 1913 Liberty Head nickel. Colby joined FNC in 2003 and took a hiatus from her current role as co-anchor for the network’s America’s News Headquarters to film FBN’s Strange Inheritance.
Strange Inheritance is produced by Towers Productions, which is known for such programs as The History Channel’s Gangland, National Geographic’s Inside 9/11, The Weather Channel’s Storm Stories and A&E’s American Justice.
