ABC Greenlights “Whodunnit” Reality Competition Series
ABC’s love affair with mystery-related games will continue this summer. The network has ordered nine episodes of the new unscripted series Whodunnit?. We previously discussed the casting here. The series is from CSI co-creator Anthony E. Zuiker and 51 Minds. Imagine the board game Clue in a game show setting and you essentially have Whodunnit?. Thirteen contestants begin the series and try to solve different fictional murders. New crimes will be unveiled each week. Eventually the sole survivor who unmasks the killer in the final episode of the series will win $250,000. ABC has had success with previous mystery games like The Mole and Take The Money and Run.
I’m a sucker for these shows, so I’m excited to see it this summer. I’m a giant fan of ABC’s The Mole, one of the few reality shows I liked. This site’s love for the criminally underrated Take The Money and Run is well documented, too. This has a good group behind it so we look forward to the results.
