YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. -- Scott Weinberger believes in the truth, no matter how uncomfortable or jarring.
The CEO and founder of NYC-based Weinberger Media -- his company is behind “On the Case with Paula Zahn” which recently wrapped its 14th season – has entered a relationship with Investigation Discovery to partner on a new series, "True Conviction" (working title).
The series will feature acclaimed Brooklyn prosecutor Anna-Sigga Nizolazzi, who recently retired from the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office with a celebrated 35-0 success record in the Homicide Bureau, traveling the country to showcase her colleagues discussing the most difficult homicide cases they ever faced, and giving viewers an inside look at the inner mechanics of these complicated cases.
Slated to premiere later this year, the series began shooting two weeks ago.
Weinberger, a Yorktown Heights resident, said all of this is exciting, especially as it gives him the opportunity to apply his own experiences, having spent more than a decade in law enforcement in Florida and later, as a three-time Emmy-award winning investigative reporter at WNBC-TV and WCBS-TV in New York.
“In my previous life as a detective, prosecutors were always saying, ‘Don’t tell me what you know. Tell me what you can prove. And prove it to a jury,’” said Weinberger.
“This show is going to reveal the mechanics of how these murder cases work with behind-the-scenes insight that viewers have never been exposed to before, demonstrating how prosecutors piece together information from so many sources to form a compelling case that will lead a jury to make a prudent decision.”
