ID reveals the dark side lurking behind a popular, adult men’s magazine with The Playboy Murders, an anthology series recounting murders and mysteries that intersect with the world of Playboy. This six-part series is hosted and executive produced by former Playboy Bunny Holly Madison and will be available to stream the same day on discovery+.
“Starting this January, ID is moving right into the centre of the pop culture conversation by unpacking how fascination with celebrity can quickly twist into an obsession with devastating results,” said Jason Sarlanis, President of Crime and Investigative Content, Linear and Streaming. “From executive producer Holly Madison, The Playboy Murders gives first-person insight far beyond the glamour of the magazine into the dark side of the iconic Bunny ears.”
In the series, ID bares it all, revealing tragedies that span decades of the once-iconic brand. In the premiere episode, “Bunny Meets Bachelor,” airing January 23 at 10/9c, after a Playboy party hostess and model is found dead and dismembered in a dumpster, it ignites a tabloid media frenzy.
As police investigate her romantic partners, Jasmine Fiore’s husband, a VH1 reality star, heads for the Canadian border. Additional stories featured include Stacy Arthur, the middle-American mom who spent hours on Playboy’s premium 1-900 number, attracting one fan’s fatal obsession.
And there’s the story about the Playboy Club romance of Carole Gold and husband Charles that puts a Bunny behind bars. Also, former Playboy cyber girl Christina Carlin-Kraft whose promising future is dashed after a night out on the town; and more.
The Playboy Murders is produced by Lion Television US for Investigation Discovery. Check out the trailer here.
