I’d love to be a part of this show…where do I apply?
ABC’s gearing up to deliver a new reality series called Whodunnit? featuring 13 contestants trying to solve a mystery. The series, which just began production, debuts this summer for a nine-episode run. Series creator Anthony E Zuiker (CSI) says, “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. Whodunnit? allows everyday fans to be in the show themselves and get the chance every week to do what they love best, which is ultimately solve the case.”
“Whodunnit? takes the best elements from the timelessly entertaining narrative form, the murder mystery, and infuses it with all the contemporary energy of a competition based reality show. The mystery fans who suddenly find themselves in the middle of an unfolding murder mystery won’t actually be playing for their lives, of course, but they’ll certainly feel like they are, and it promises to be just as engaging and suspenseful for the viewers at home,” added executive producer Cris Abrego.
Each week players will use a variety of crime scene investigation techniques to meticulously uncover evidence that will ultimately reveal who among them is the killer. The interactive series will pit 13 amateur sleuths against each other in a quest to solve a series of puzzling murders. Some will form alliances and others will choose to go it alone just to get them closer to the grand prize. The contestants will reside on a glamorous estate where each week they must solve a new crime in order to advance in the game. Failure to solve the crime will lead to each player’s demise until only three are left. In the final episode, one player will unmask the killer and take home the $250,000 prize.
