The courageous stories of whistleblowers are about to get some national recognition. CBS is launching a new true-crime series that takes a look at the contributions of whistleblowers in helping to stop fraud against the government. The name of the program is Whistleblower.
CBS says Whistleblower takes a thrilling look into the real-life David vs. Goliath stories of heroic people who put everything on the line in order to expose illegal and often dangerous wrongdoing when major corporations rip off U.S. taxpayers. Hosted by attorney Alex Ferrer, a former judge and police officer, each hour introduces cases in which ordinary people step up to do the extraordinary by risking their careers, their families and even their lives to ensure others are not harmed or killed by unchecked, unethical corporate greed.
The premiere episode will feature cases concerning a pediatric dental chain and a pharmaceutical giant. It debuts Friday, July 13th at 8 PM on CBS.
