Female-skewing crime network Oxygen Media has set an early January premiere date for Wilshire Studios’ investigative series Mysteries & Scandals.

Fronted by StarfishMedia CEO Soledad O’Brien (pictured), the 13 x 60-minute true crime series will turn its lens on some of the most infamous and notorious crimes, murders, and scandals that shook the nation while also impacting pop culture.

Through first-hand accounts, re-enactments and archive footage, the series features O’Brien pulling back the curtain on a variety of cases, with exclusive access granted to those closest to each investigation: family members, friends, witnesses, detectives and jury members.

Explored in Mysteries & Scandals, which debuts Jan. 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Oxygen, are such celebrity tragedies as Bobbi Kristina Brown and Whitney Houston’s parallel deaths, the demise of both Michael Jackson and Anna Nicole Smith, and the crimes of O.J. Simpson.

Additionally, O’Brien pulls the curtain back on the Wonderland Murders, notorious 1980s serial killers Richard Ramirez and Aileen Wuornos, and the Slenderman Attacks.

Wilshire’s Betsy Rott serves as executive producer alongside O’Brien.

“What an amazing opportunity to work with Oxygen on Mysteries & Scandals, reliving and retelling some of the biggest stories that captured national headlines,” said O’Brien in a statement. “Through never before seen interviews and meticulous fact-finding, we give viewers a fresh perspective.”
