Plot Synopsis

PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES: CULTS is a one-hour docuseries that explores how destructive and terrifying cults can be to cult members and their families. Each of the 6 one-hour episodes dives deep inside a twisted American cult, building to that pivotal moment when blind worship turns violent and even deadly. From Jonestown to the Army of God, "People" reporters are on the front lines, revealing the untold stories of power-crazed cult leaders using mind control, sex, and violence to manipulate and dominate followers. Each episode follows the trusted journalists of "People" as they doggedly investigate the evolution of these cults, expose their bizarre and brutal day-to-day rituals, and speak first-hand to survivors who narrowly escaped lives of misery to put their cult nightmares finally behind them. The series opener highlights Tony Alamo Ministries. Initially, the Alamo Christian Foundation once held hope for a better society for young people seeking purpose. But when Susan Alamo dies of cancer, Tony reveals his dark side and turns his anger on his followers, including taking multiple child brides.
On Monday, July 9, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT, Investigation Discovery premieres "The Nuwaubian Nation of Moors," the season finale of PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES: CULTS. The followers of cult leader Dwight York come from all walks of life. Ruby joins the Nuwaubian Nation when looking for answers to life's big questions while Niki is brought in as a child. Both become disillusioned as they learn the truth about York.
