Murder in Small Town X | 2000
Reality series in which 10 players are moved to a small town where they attempt to solve a fictional murder mystery while being stalked by the "killer." As the players set about their investigation, they are led by Gary Fredo, a real-life sergeant with a Southern California Law Enforcement Agency, who advises them of the parameters and rules. They are given clues to follow, which bring them into contact with locals, played by actors. One piece of evidence leads to another, but during each episode, a selected pair venture into a terrifying situation to advance the investigation. Only one person returns. As the killer claims more victims, the stakes are raised for the remaining contestants, as they struggle to identify the villain and remain the last person standing.
