ID Greenlights New Follow-Up Documentary Featuring Exclusive Bombshell Revelations From Natalia Barnett
'The Curious Case of Natalia Grace: Natalia Speaks' is set to air on ID later this summer.
After the success of its explosive three-part docuseries The Curious Case of Natalia Grace, Investigation Discovery has announced a follow-up documentary The Curious Case of Natalia Grace: Natalia Speaks that is set to air later this summer. The new documentary will feature shocking and emotional access to Natalia Barnett as she tells her side of the story in the next chapter of a bizarre family saga about a 6-year-old Ukrainian orphan with spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia - a rare bone growth disorder that can result in skeletal abnormalities. Her adoptive parents, Michael and Kristine Barnett, allege that Natalia was an adult masquerading as a child when she was adopted. The first episode of the original docuseries, which premiered on Monday, May 29th, drove ID, the leading true crime network, to rank as the #1 non-sports cable net in the 9-11pm time period among viewers P25-54 and women 25-54. This is pacing as the network’s highest rated limited series in over three years among viewers P25-54 and women 25-54.
The Curious Case of Natalia Grace: Natalia Speaks will be Natalia’s answer to The Curious Case of Natalia Grace. Natalia will share her side of the story of what happened behind the closed doors of the Barnett family home and address allegations against her head on. After years of being cloaked under a gag order due to the subsequent legal proceedings around the 2019 arrest of her adoptive parents, Natalia has been unable to tell her story - until now.
ID’s bombshell docuseries, The Curious Case of Natalia Grace, which aired its shocking finale last night, offers extraordinary access and insight into a mystery ripped straight from the headlines: Who is Natalia Barnett? Initially Natalia was adopted by the Barnetts in 2010. However, the happy family dynamic soured when Michael and Kristine alleged that Natalia was an adult pretending to be a child and that she intended to harm their family. In 2013, Natalia was discovered living on her own which ignited an investigation that led to Michael and Kristine's arrest and a firestorm of questions. The docuseries featured exclusive interviews with the Barnetts, including father Michael Barnett and brother Jacob Barnett, and other friends who were close to the family.
