This November Sweeps, Bernie Kosar, the Rev. Al Sharpton and Daryl Hannah team with AMERICA’S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK to help bring justice to crime victims and their families. On Saturday, Nov. 4 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), former NFL quarterback Bernie Kosar joins with AMW to help find the person responsible for the murder of Charles Scott White. When Kosar learned that the victim was a big fan from his Cleveland Browns days, he offered to help. White had finished work and was on the way to his car when he was ambushed by two armed men who tried to rob him and his manager outside the restaurant where they worked. A scuffle ensued and one of the assailants shot White at point blank range, killing him instantly.
The following week, on Saturday, Nov. 11 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on the AMW: YOU CAN RUN, BUT YOU CAN’T HIDE SPECIAL EDITION, AMW will profile the most elusive fugitive in the show’s history. Twenty-four years after his rented plane crashed into a remote mountain lake, killing his teenage girlfriend, a fugitive is finally brought to justice. Also in this episode, AMW teams up with the Rev. Al Sharpton in the hunt for clues leading to the killer of Brooklyn teenager Chanel Petro-Nixon. Sharpton says: "It’s personal to me because it happened where I grew up. I mean, this is the neighborhood I started preaching in. This is the neighborhood my mother raised me in. This is the neighborhood (where) I know everybody. And we can’t just allow our children to be murdered and thrown out like trash."
Next, on Saturday, Nov. 18 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) in the AMW: WEDDING DRESS RAPIST SPECIAL EDITION, everyone knows what a wedding dress means to a woman, but what does it mean to one sick man? AMW asks for viewers’ help in profiling a devious criminal who has been assaulting women in their homes. Viewers can take notes on the case, build a profile of the unknown assailant and email it to AMW after the broadcast. Law enforcement officials will review the submitted profiles in hopes of gleaning new clues to the fugitive’s identity.
In the final special episode of November, AMW: SEX SLAVE SPECIAL EDITION airing Saturday, Nov. 25 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), AMW takes a look at a very serious issue – sex slaves and the big business behind human trafficking. Find out what is being done to stop this barbaric practice. Hollywood star Daryl Hannah has made it her mission to protect women, and, in particular, to stop sex slave rings operating in this country and abroad. Now AMW joins in her fight to take down these predators.
