Mobile-first streamer Quibi has ordered the true crime series Murder Unboxed from St. Louis-based Coolfire Studios.

The series mimicks the style of popular online “unboxing” videos by dusting off boxes of evidence from “outlandish” real life murder cases.

Each episode takes a new case and introduces seemingly unrelated evidence, one item at a time.

Through interviews with investigators, prosecutors and witnesses of each case, along with stylized recreations, the story of how the items — from a bottle of brandy to a toaster, a pile of cash and a Bourne Supremacy DVD — came together to solve the previously unsolved crime.

Jeff Keane, David Johnson and Steve Luebbert serve as executive producers for Coolfire Studios. Jeremy Corray is co-executive producer.

Quibi, which has been recently ramping up its unscripted lineup with series such as Punk’d and Bad Ideas with Adam Devine (w/t), launches April 6.
