Applying The ‘Predator’ Format To Fraud, Identity Theft, Human Trafficking…

I should have linked to this TV Guide Q&A with Dateline EP David Corvo last week. Here’s an excerpt about how Dateline is taking the format of ‘To Catch A Predator’ and applying it to othe subjects::

  TVGuide.com: I’ve heard you’re trying to turn the whole Internet-crime theme into a bigger franchise.

Corvo: We’re going to take the same format of sophisticated hidden-camera operations and apply it to other topics that have nothing to do with sexual predators — like fraud, identity theft, human trafficking — things that are very different but have the same impact in that you’re seeing the story develop in front of your own eyes. That’s why “To Catch a Predator” has succeeded.
