HLN has acquired the exclusive cable TV rights to the ABC series What Would You Do?

The network will begin airing back-to-back episodes of the hidden camera series on Thursdays and Sundays from 9 p.m.-11 p.m., starting Oct. 21.

The acquisition is part of a larger portfolio expansion of HLN, which includes the recent launch of new documentary series Nancy Grace Mysteries (Fridays, 8 p.m.-9 p.m.) and Making It in America (weekdays, 4 p.m.-5 p.m.) with host Vinnie Politan.

"HLN is exploring new programming dimensions that connect us with a broader audience while continuing to deliver what HLN fans want: must-see, must-share news that relates to how we live today," said Scot Safon, HLN GM and executive vice president.

HLN will also premiere a new show with network talent Dr. Drew Pinsky, Dr. Drew On Call, starting Oct. 22. The show, which will air Mondays through Wednesdays from 9-10 p.m., will take a more audience-driven approach to his HLN show Dr. Drew.
