If a simple scan of the dominance of crime procedurals atop domestic tv ratings are any indication, Americans are crazier than ever over a good murder mystery. But what if that mystery…was real? This collaboration with legendary CSI creator Anthony Zuiker pits 13 amateur sleuths against one another in a quest to solve a series of increasingly puzzling murders. With shockingly believable effects and dazzlingly original crimes from the mind of a true master, we provide the clues. It’s up to our average American contestants to piece them together. Each week these players will use a variety of crime scene investigation techniques to uncover evidence that will ultimately reveal who among them is the killer. Failure to do so will result in “death”, and dismissal from the show’s glamorous estate. In the end, only one player will unmask the killer and take home the $250,000 prize, and prove themselves worthy adversaries to television’s most diabolical minds.
