With the Dalia Dippolito trial making national headlines again, Dateline NBC is devoting its show to the story this Friday.

Among those Dateline interviewed is Palm Beach Post presentation editor Jan Tuckwood.

Tuckwood says the show's producers interviewed her about the Palm Beach lifestyle, the paper's coverage of Dippolito's two trials, and what the area is like. 

They also asked why people are so fascinated with the case. "This case is like reality TV but better, because it's real," she said. "It has all the elements of a great piece of fictional drama."

She says that with the high profile case in the spotlight and President-elect Donald Trump being a part time Palm Beacher, interest in the area is again front and center.

The Dateline episode, titled 'The Sting,' airs Friday, Dec. 16 at 9 p.m. on WPTV.
