New Specials "Secret Societies of Hollywood" Premieres from 8:00pm-10:00pm ET/PT Followed by "Hollywood Death Trip" from 10:00pm-11:00pm ET/PT Only on E!

October 15, 2013 - During what some would call the most sinister month of the year, E! explores a side of Tinseltown beyond all the glitz and glamour. The night kicks off with the new two-hour special "Secret Societies of Hollywood" which takes a look into the secret world of underground sex clubs and ultra-exclusive celebrity parties that only cater to the ultimate VIP scene. Then "Hollywood Death Trip" follows, revealing disturbing details behind some of the city's best known tragedies. Premiering Thursday, October 24, don't miss the new E! specials "Secret Societies of Hollywood" from 8:00pm-10:00pm ET/PT followed by a wild ride on the "Hollywood Death Trip" at 10:00 PM ET/PT.

Beyond the red carpet and behind the security gates lies a forbidden Hollywood that only the rich and famous know about... until now. The "Secret Societies of Hollywood" range from ultra-exclusive parties to secret political connections and wild sex clubs. VIP nightclubs and bars are hidden all over Hollywood, where addresses are public, but entry is private often requiring a secret password to get inside. Within these exclusive members-only organizations, the search for excess can be found everywhere: from notorious Hollywood madam's like Heidi Fleiss who was believed to have supplied prostitutes for many big name stars, to an underground society of people who celebrate their love of bondage and other bizarre sexual tastes at parties that rotate from clubs to mansions all over the city, to a possible secret Hollywood organization that seeks to rule the world. What really goes on behind the scenes where only a select few have access to and which famous stars are members of these top secret organizations? Find out when "Secret Societies of Hollywood" premieres Thursday, October 24 at 8:00pm ET/PT.

Then during "Hollywood Death Trip," Dearly Departed Tours founder Scott Michaels, takes Danielle Harris, a modern day scream queen and actress ("Halloween," "Halloween II," "Hallows' Eve"), on a special tour of the city's most disturbing death sites while offering new insight into the unfortunate events that took place. The hour-long special details the tragedy surrounding "Sons of Anarchy" actor Johnny Lewis, with Michaels and Harris getting a first-hand account from a neighbor who narrowly escaped becoming Lewis' victim himself. Later, Michaels and Harris examine Playboy Playmate of the Year Dorothy Stratten's mysterious passing in her estranged husband's room through a revealing chat with the roommate who discovered their bodies. And at the site where Brittany Murphy's home once stood, her father speaks with Michaels and Harris (Brittany's childhood friend) about what he believes is actually the shocking truth behind his daughter's death. An investigative journalist and filmmaker talks about the attempts to unearth information on the brutal murder of Hollywood power player and publicist Ronni Chasen, examining the unanswered questions which sprung up soon after her death. And finally, Michaels and Harris also speak with the best friend and roommate of Ashley Ellerin, an aspiring actress who may have been killed by the "Hollywood Ripper" just before Ashton Kutcher arrived to pick her up for their first date.

"Secret Societies of Hollywood" is produced by Prometheus Entertainment and "Hollywood Death Trip" is produced by eggplant tv.
