Takes a lighter approach to the procedural with contestants vying to determine which one of them committed a fictional murder. The 13 would-be sleuths will follow the Clue formula, employing real life crime scene investigation techniques to uncover and discern the staged evidence. Much like the movie inspired by the classic game, contestants will also stay together in a glitzy estate. A new crime will be presented each week so that they might advance in the game. The finale will find one player unmasking the killer to win a $250,000 prize. Written by

The "state your case" segment of each episode, where the contestants describe in monologue how they believe the murder was committed, exists solely for dramatic effect. It is not the basis for elimination from the game. Elimination is instead handled by an unaired written test, not terribly unlike that of fellow reality game show The Mole
(2001), except that it calls for short answers rather than a multiple choice selection. The test also does not ask the contestants to name the killer; this too exists only for dramatic effect. See more
