Real Housewife Garcelle Beauvais to Narrate the Real Murders of Los Angeles This Fall
Oxygen True Crime exposes the dark underbelly of a city's glamorous façade when Real Murders of Los Angeles premieres Friday, Oct. 6.
There’s more to Los Angeles than the glitz and allure of Hollywood, the millionaires in tony Bel Air and Beverly Hills, or the agile surfers in Venice and Malibu.
In the City of Angels, as everyone strives for the unattainable high life, there are some who are willing to kill to get it. Oxygen True Crime expands its “Real Murders” franchise to Los Angeles as it looks beyond the city's glamorous façade to expose a dark underbelly where the pursuit of the American Dream can turn deadly.
Real Murders of Los Angeles premieres Friday, Oct. 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Actress and “Real Housewife of Beverly Hills” Garcelle Beauvais, an expert on all things L.A., takes viewers beyond the velvet rope as she serves as the show’s narrator. Beauvais will guide viewers through twist and turns of true stories of victims whose dreams were shattered by ruthless killers whose lust for fame and fortune led them to commit salacious, sinful and scandalous murders.
