By Brian Flood 

Dateline NBC fans have a lot of TV to watch this weekend.

Friday night’s edition featured an all-new report of a major murder investigation. Josh Mankiewicz spoke with Rachel Buffett about being at the center of an investigation involving both her former fiancé and her friend, a 26-year-old Army veteran.

Keith Morrison tells the story of an Oregon family, whose five kids are at risk of a rare and life-threatening heart disease on Sunday at 7 p.m ET. Lester Holt reports on one of the biggest Medicare fraud cases in U.S. history in an exclusive interview with victims of Michigan oncologist Farid Fata’s horrific crimes on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET.


“Lester, Josh and Keith’s hours showcase some of our finest storytelling and reporting,” Dateline EP Liz Cole told TVNewser. “This weekend we have something for everyone: mystery, medicine, and a head-snapping investigation.”
