I had an opportunity to interview the host of Strange Inheritance, Jamie Colby. Ms. Colby had been working with Fox Business Network for over a decade after graduating from law school and becoming an adjunct professor of law. The network came to her with the idea for the show and she told me she found it quite fascinating on many levels.
Colby's team has put together 26 episodes from Internet research and court filings on what they considered strange items that people had been left by deceased relatives. Colby has now crisscrossed the nation, visiting 25 states and meeting with the families. She learned of their challenges dealing with not only the magnitude of what was left, but the wishes of the deceased. The show has become the most successful launch of any new show on the network.
Colby spoke of an upcoming episode where the family was left a fleet of old tractors. Some had to be sold and the family was bewildered as to which ones had to go. Fortunately, they were able to get guidance from their deceased relative and resolved the matter to where everyone was comfortable.
Colby told me what she has seen is that the show "has really caused people to think about their own inheritance. I mentioned recently setting up a meeting for a very successful attorney who had told me that despite his knowledge of law and being over 70 years old he was not properly prepared for his own demise. Colby reminded that many people avoid the subject because they just are uncomfortable confronting death. Colby stated "The show raises awareness for families of what might confront them in the future."

Joining FNC in 2003, Colby serves as the co-anchor for America's News Headquarters, from which she will be taking a hiatus while filming Strange Inheritance.
