Murder House Flip is like a true crime Room To Improve and we need to watch it immediately

No, Dermot Bannon is not hosting, sorry.

If there's one thing the general public like, it's a true crime show.

Making A Murderer, The Staircase, The Keepers, and all of those false confession programmes that are sure to make even the most positive of people deeply, deeply frustrated.

They're great, but they can get a bit heavy sometimes, what with all of the murder, the crime, and the victim statements.

It makes sense then that a show that combines all of the intrigue of true crime with the loveliness of a home renovation is something that almost everybody in the world is going to be interested in.

Why wouldn't they be? It sounds incredible.

Murder House Flip is a home makeover show that involves houses where serious crimes occurred. Mainly murders, tbh.

So, exactly what it says on the tin then.

The series, release date TBC, comes from CSI producer Josh Berman, Penny Dreadful producer Chris King and author Katherine Ramsland.

The trio have put together a show that will give viewers an insight into the history of the buildings, the crimes that were committed there, and how a bit of IKEA furniture can give even the most dire of residences a new lease of life, probably.

“We are thrilled to bring this one-of-a-kind series to life and dive into a world that combines America’s two biggest TV obsessions: true crime and home renovation,” Elyse Seder, senior vice president of alternative and syndicated programming for Sony Pictures Television, told  TODAY Home.

"A colorful cast of forensic specialists, spiritual healers and high-end renovation experts (will) uncover the crimes, shocking secrets and scandalous history of the homes."

The show is dropping onto new mobile streaming service Quibi, which launches next April. And although we don't have an exact release date for the series just yet, at least we know it's on the way.

2020 can't come soon enough.
