VH1 has announced plans to air a new seven-episode series called Famous Crime Scene that will revisit the deaths of artists like John Lennon, Tupac Shakur and Michael Jackson, THR's The Live Feed reports. The show, which will debut February 12th, recreates the musicians' final moments CSI-style, as experts examine toxicology reports, blood-spray patterns, DNA evidence and more, while witnesses and investigators share their recollection of the case.
The network's other fresh shows include Transform Me, a series that strives to give women makeovers on the outside and inside, and Undateable, an advice show for men who are not worthy of a mate. VH1 will respond to the wild popularity of MTV's Jersey Shore by hitting the slopes in a "docusoap" called Peak Season: Vancouver, which follows the lives of young people at a ski resort in the Great White North.
As Rolling Stone reported last year, MTV will also begin to roll out their heavy lineup of non-music programming in the coming months. Their new series reportedly include a TV reboot of Teen Wolf, The Hills's Audrina Partridge's spin-off show and an animated series called The Awesomes from SNL's Seth Meyers.
