Real fake gameshows: Murder

The estimable Rob Buckley provides a valuable service to his readers by rounding up the entertainment news.  Today he has drawn this to general attention.  

SPike TV is going to make “Murder” where a Texan detective hosts two teams solving a real murder from a reconstructed crime scene, getting the list of real suspects, looking at real evidence, meeting the real coroner, and getting real case files.  They have two days to solve the case.  After each team proposes their solution (having gathered all the suspects in the sitting room) the detective tells them what really happened, but judges which was best and for the winning team “a donation [is] made in their names to a selected victim’s charity.” (presumably a relative of the victim on account of murder involving dead victims).

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.
