Wednesday afternoon, the network ordered nine episodes of the reality show where contestants will work to solve fictional crimes. The 13 contestants chosen will use a variety of crime solving techniques to investigate crime scenes and use their deductive reasoning skills to resolve the crimes. The twist? One among them is the killer. During the show’s finale, one player will unmask the killer among them and win $250,000. Think “The Mole” meets “Clue.”
Zuiker released a short statement saying
“I’ve built a career telling crime stories, and if there’s one thing that I’ve learned, especially from ‘CSI,’ it’s that the audience loves to solve the mystery.
There is no premiere date set for the show yet, but expect it to air sometime this summer on ABC!
