There are so many house flipping shows available as you skip through television channels, and sure, it's nice to watch people change a drab house to fab, but what about changing a murder house to a, uh, not murder house?
“Murder House Flip,” a true-crime home renovation show, is a new project expected to stream on the upcoming mobile streamer Quibi.
Josh Berman of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “Bones” fame, along with Chris King, Katherine Ramsland and Sony Pictures TV, are the executive producers of the expected show, which promises to take homes tainted by heinous murders, cleanse them of their bad energy, and make them over, Deadline reports.
“We are excited to partner with Quibi to deliver a spin on a home makeover show in unique short form content,” Berman told Deadline. “‘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.”
Each episode will likely be short, as Quibi promises to offer “quick bites of captivating entertainment” for mobile consumption. The mobile-only streaming service is set to debut in April. It comes from former Disney CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg and former eBay CEO Meg Whitman, VICE reports.
“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,” Elyse Seder, SVP Alternative & Syndicated Programming for Sony Pictures Television, told Deadline.
Berman recently served as executive producer on “Daytime Divas.” He also created “Notorious,” which ran on ABC for one season. Ramsland is a professor of forensic psychology who has authored over 60 books, and King is an actor who produced the horror drama “Penny Dreadful.”
