[WARNING: The following story reveals The Killer's identity on Whodunnit? Read at your own risk.]
Whodunnit? wrapped up its first season Sunday night and we miss it already.
For the contestants on ABC's murder-mystery reality show Whodunnit?, the big puzzle is the identity of the killer who's picking them off one by one. But what's on the minds of executive producers Anthony Zuiker and Cris Abrego is not a question of who, but of how.
In the video clip below, exclusive to TVGuide.com, Zuiker and Abrego outline the intricate process behind creating the crime scenes in each episode — including that elaborate slingshot/fish tank murder from the premiere.
The contestants on Whodunnit?, ABC's murder-mystery summer reality show, have one objective: to survive long enough to determine who the Killer is, as he/she picks off a new victim each week. But at least one member of the cast has been in a similar situation before.
Giles the butler (Gildart Jackson), is actually employed by the Killer, and guides the players through the game by delivering messages from the Killer and offering them clues along the way.
Think of ABC's summer series Whodunnit? as CSI-meets-reality TV — quite literally. The Clue-like murder-mystery show, in which 13 contestants are brought to a sprawling mansion to compete in a game to find out the identity of the killer among them, is the brainchild of reality TV veteran Cris Abrego (Rock of Love, The Surreal Life) and CSI creator Anthony Zuiker.
