It was back in October 2018 that HLN decided to fire some of their big-name hosts and cut three live shows from their programming.
It’s possible that the network was trying to make room for new scripted shows rather than the live programming. The network recently revealed that it is introducing five new shows under the HLN Original Series programming, including Very Scary People.
Unmasking A Killer, the Hunt for the Golden State Killer, was the first of the original programming to air in 2019 with a two-part series on February 17 and 18.
Very Scary People premieres on HLN on March 17, 2019, starting at 9/8c.
