"Surviving Evil: Host, Charisma Carpenter

      Twenty years ago Charisma Carpenter came face-to-face with evil and lived to tell about it. Now the actress (best known for her role in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and its spin-off "Angel") is hosting an empowering new series telling true-crime stories about victims turning the tables on their assailants.

      We talked live via satellite with Charisma about her new series, "Surviving Evil."

      The series premiere of "Surviving Evil" airs tonight at 10:00 on Investigation Discovery.
