Following a trial run last summer, “Nightline” is expanding this summer to 13 hour-long specials in primetime. The first five episodes, which begin next Wednesday, are delving into the supernatureal and are titled “Beyond Belief.”
The 5-part investigation will feature Bob Woodruff reporting on his memory of seeing “his body floating below in a kind of whiteness” after the 2006 IED attack that left him and his cameraman with head injuries in Iraq. It will also feature installments from Juju Chang on “Twin-tuition”, Terry Moran dances with the devil and Bill Weir looks into miracles.
ABC is hoping the summer series will capitalize on the recent success of “Nightline,” which was the most-watched late night show for the 2010-2011 season.
