BURBANK, Calif. � April 10, 2008 � Sleuth boasts a premiere line up in April 2008 with Frank Sinatra and his "tough guy" attitude during a weekend of trouble, including rarely before seen pilot movies starring the one and only "Magnum, PI's" Tom Selleck.

"This April, Sleuth gives viewers a jam packed schedule featuring the best of old and new talent," said Dan Harrison, Senior Vice President, Emerging Networks. "We are pleased to have 'Keen Eddie' on the schedule and to reunite one of the greatest pairs in detective history � 'Hart to Hart.'"
