New Show Murder House Flip Will Renovate Murder Scenes To Sell
It pretty much delivers exactly what it says on the tin. They take a house that has been the scene of a grisly murder, then they do it up in order to sell it on.
Well, it's hard enough to get on the housing ladder in these straightened economic times, why not try to bag yourself a bargain by buying a property that has been the location of a violent killing?
Anyway, Murder House Flip is brought to you by CSI executive producer Josh Berman and will see a mixture of forensic science specialists, spiritualist healers, and - of course - swanky renovation experts take on the challenge of making the tainted homes habitable again, while also getting stuck into their gruesome past.
Penny Dreadful's Chris King and author Katherine Ramsland are also signed up to produce the show for Sony Pictures Television.
Sony said: "We are thrilled to bring this one of a kind series to life and dive into a world that combines America's two biggest TV obsessions: true crime and home renovation."
According to Deadline, the show will see a 'colourful cast of forensic specialists, spiritual healers and high-end renovation experts to uncover the crimes, shocking secrets and scandalous history of the homes'.
Berman said: "Murder House Flip combines home renovations with the intriguing elements of a true crime series. Bringing healing and solace to families living in the aftermath of tragic events by transforming dark places into healthy spaces."
Well, that's a noble goal, if nothing else.
If you want to catch this bizarre - but admittedly intriguing - new show, you'll have to sign up to yet another streaming service to get access to it.
Murder House Flip will be available to watch on a new mobile-only streaming service called Quibi, which launches this April. Unfortunately, there aren't any current details of when the service will be available in the UK.
Episodes of the show, and all shows on the new platform, are going to be between seven and 10 minutes long, so they'll be cramming a lot in there.
Alongside shows like Murder Flip House, Quibi has also signed deals with the BBC Studios Natural History Unit and Manchester-based company Workerbee, so it's likely that a UK roll-out will be announced in the not-so-distant future.
