New role.

Per the Associated Press, Susan Lucci (ex-Erica) is returning to TV. This time she will take on the role of host for the Investigation Discovery network show “Deadly Affairs.”

While Lucci has seen her share of romance gone wrong on “All My Children,” “Deadly Affairs” will be no work of fiction. The series will explore real-life crimes of passion in the 10 episode season premiering in the fall.
