Just what are new series Motive and Whodunnit?
When murder is committed, Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman), a loving, single mother and a damned good detective, along with her partner, Detective Oscar Vega (Louis Ferreira), are on the case, looking for clues that will lead them to the killer. But Motive turns the tried-and-true crime drama formula on its head by indentifying the Killer and Victim at the beginning of each episode.
Whodunnit? is a primetime reality series from CSI creator Anthony E. Zuiker. The nine-episode alternative series puts 13 contestants’ investigative skills to the test in a mystery reality competition. 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 a 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.
