Murder House Flip release date, premise and where to watch

There are few things America loves more than true crime and home renovation — they go together like OJ and champagne. Now, those two American pastimes are being combined into one glorious "mimOSHA" of a show called Murder House Flip, a killer idea which is guaranteed to show you how to gut a room in more ways than one.

If it sounds like an intriguing but kind of creepy combo, your intuition is correct. So what do the show's blueprints ... or fingerprints ... look like? A quick dusting of the press release issued to Today reveals a "colorful cast of forensic specialists, spiritual healers and high-end renovation experts," who will "uncover the crimes, shocking secrets and scandalous history of the homes."

Hopefully they check the crawlspace. Here's your case brief on Murder House Flip.

Here's the release date for Murder House Flip

So when will we be able to view the evidence? As of now, you can expect a release date of early Spring, specifically April 6, 2020. The show will launch with the new mobile-centered streaming service, Quibi, slated for the same date. Per PopSugar, Murder House Flip will be produced by Penny Dreadful's Chris King and author Katherine Ramsland, bringing a fittingly spooky flair to the series. "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," said Elyse Seder, SVP Alternative & Syndicated Programming of Sony Pictures Television.

What is Murder House Flip's premise?

Murder House Flip is equal parts history and House Hunters, featuring homes from across the United States that "found their way to fame thanks to mysterious murders and intriguing crimes committed within their four walls." An examination of its heart reveals that it's a show for home makeover fans, but it also gets surprisingly deep into the "shocking secrets and scandalous stories" of the homes it features. After crime experts uncover the sordid details of each property, spiritual healers step in to "remove the stains of the past." And then the high-end renovation experts literally remove those stains and finish transforming the home, bringing it to life once more.

Where to watch Murder House Flip

The investigation will be held on the new mobile-streaming service, Quibi, which is expected to charge $5 a month with ads, and $8 monthly for the ad-free version, according to Cord Cutters News. The service offers three tiers of content. First is "movies," to be told in mini-episodes, each around 7-10 minutes long. Next are unscripted documentaries and shows, featuring stars such as Chrissy Teigen and Idris Elba. Last are "daily essentials," offering "news clips, sports highlights, and the best of late night TV."

Quibi is expected to spend an estimated $1 billion on content in the first year alone, and will roll out more than 175 shows and 8,500 episodes.

Katzenberg states the idea Quibi came from books with short, bite-sized chapters that can be easily digested in the busy modern day schedule. Specifically, he cites The Da Vinci Code. So, if you're a Quibi fan, you have Dan Brown to thank.
