Real People Solve Real-Life Crimes in Spike TV's 'Murder'

Series Produced By Bunim-Murray Productions Premieres Tuesday, July 31 at 10 PM, ET/PT

Sneak Peek Of The Premiere Episode Of "Murder" Will Be Available On July 24 At spiketv.com And xBox

LOS ANGELES, July 13 -- Following in the dramatic tradition of "CSI," Spike TV's new unscripted series, "Murder," follows real people as they try to solve a real homicide pulled directly from police files. Produced by reality innovator Bunim-Murray Productions, this compelling and all-too- real alternative series premieres on Tuesday, July 31 (10:00 - 11:00 PM, ET/PT) on Spike TV.

"Murder" is hosted by Detective Tommy Le Noir, a 27-year Arlington, Texas decorated law enforcement veteran who is responsible for multiple capital murder convictions. Each episode begins with Detective Le Noir escorting two groups of civilians into an exact replica crime scene pulled from the files of a solved homicide case. The original crime scenes are re-created down to the very last detail so that each group can experience exactly what the original detectives encountered. Every pertinent detail available to the original detectives has been recreated and is available to the groups, who then assess the crime scene and collect evidence. The groups are given a list of potential suspects, an opportunity to analyze the suspect's interrogation tapes and then meet with a coroner to review the findings of the original autopsy report.

The participants are given 48 hours to complete their investigation, collect and catalogue their evidence and use their own smarts and instincts to find the murderer. Each group makes a dynamic visual presentation with its findings to Detective Le Noir. After the presentations, Detective Le Noir presents what actually happened at the crime scene and reveals which group identified the correct killer. Each week, the group that made the correct or most compelling, case will have a donation made in their names to a selected victim's charity.

Kevin Lee of Tollbooth TV, who created the series and Jon Murray of Bunim- Murray serve as executive producers for "Murder." Sharon Levy is Spike TV's senior vice president of alternative programming. Tim Duffy is Spike TV's executive in charge of production.
