Two-Hour Program Features Never-Before-Seen Footage and an Interview With Lead FBI Agent Who Cracked Case Linked to Chippendales Creator
The season 44 premiere of “20/20” dives deep into the dark history of greed, paranoia and murder behind the rise of male exotic dance troupe Chippendales, which became an international cultural phenomenon in the 80s and 90s. By creating Chippendales, Steve Banerjee found the success and fortune he always craved — but his ambition was insatiable. “20/20” documents the harrowing stories of how Banerjee conspired to eliminate those who he believed got in his way, including the shocking murder-for-hire plots against close business associates and a competing male dance troupe, and an alleged blackmail operation against an aggrieved patron of the club who sued the organization for racial discrimination. “20/20” also reports on how, over the course of 15 years, Banerjee’s obsession with wealth and control ultimately led to his own demise. The two-hour program features never-before-seen footage as well as interviews with Scott Garriola, a retired FBI special agent, who played a major role in catching and arresting Banerjee; Read Scot, a former Chippendales dancer who opens up about being the target in a thwarted murder-for-hire plot; and Natalia Mehlman Petrzela, historian and host of “Welcome To Your Fantasy,” a popular podcast on Chippendales. The special also includes interviews with former Chippendales dancers, producers and employees; Banerjee’s business associates; and family and friends of those impacted. “20/20” airs on Friday, Oct. 8 (9:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.

In theory, many military borrowers could benefit from this. But in practice, it hasn’t panned out that way. Lesley Stahl talks to a group of military lawyers who had accrued law school debt and hoped for relief in exchange for their service, but say they got lost in a maze of rigid rules and red tape. Shachar Bar-On is the producer. Preview
THE FINAL ACT – Tony Bennett has Alzheimer’s disease. It’s taken a toll on his memory, and the 95-year-old singer has trouble holding a conversation.

Anderson Cooper and 60 MINUTES cameras were at a final performance he gave with Lady Gaga to capture the moment. Nichole Marks is the producer. Preview

On Friday’s all-new Dateline NBC at 9pm ET/8pm CT, insiders close to Idaho mother Lori Isenberg speak out for the first time on television after she was convicted earlier this year of murdering her husband Larry Isenberg.

During the broadcast, Lori Isenberg’s daughter, Amber Barnes, opens up in an exclusive interview about her mother’s crimes, which included involving her in an embezzlement scheme. Barnes tells Dateline NBC’s Keith Morrison, “I regret not saying more in the beginning. I regret not talking to the investigators. I regret not standing up for Larry.” She added, “We do not support her. We do not stand by her.”
The two-hour broadcast, Kill Switch, also features new details in the case, as well as never-before-seen bodycam footage and jailhouse video from the investigation.
Additionally, Morrison speaks with Larry’s son Dean Isenberg, Lori’s daughter Chrislyn Woolston, Detective Brad Maskell and Lori’s former managers Amy Evans and Kerri Thoreson.
