During what some would call the most sinister month of the year, the E! television network is exploring a side of Tinseltown beyond all the glitz and glamour. Sound intriguing? Then read on for more details about how you, too, can take a “Hollywood Death Trip.”
“Hollywood Death Trip,” airing Thursday, October 24th, at 10PM ET/PT, reveals disturbing details behind some of the city’s best known tragedies.
Dearly Departed Tours founder Scott Michaels takes scream queen Danielle Harris on a special tour of the city’s most disturbing death sites while offering new insight into the unfortunate events that took place. The hour-long special details the tragedy surrounding “Sons of Anarchy” actor Johnny Lewis, with Michaels and Harris getting a first-hand account from a neighbor who narrowly escaped becoming Lewis’ victim himself.
Later, Michaels and Harris examine Playboy Playmate of the Year Dorothy Stratten’s mysterious passing in her estranged husband’s room through a revealing chat with the roommate who discovered their bodies. And at the site where Brittany Murphy’s home once stood, her father speaks with Michaels and Harris (Brittany’s childhood friend) about what he believes is actually the shocking truth behind his daughter’s death.
Next, an investigative journalist and filmmaker talks about the attempts to unearth information on the brutal murder of Hollywood power player and publicist Ronni Chasen, examining the unanswered questions which sprung up soon after her death. And finally, Michaels and Harris also speak with the best friend and roommate of Ashley Ellerin, an aspiring actress who may have been killed by the “Hollywood Ripper” just before Ashton Kutcher arrived to pick her up for their first date.
“Hollywood Death Trip” is produced by eggplant tv.
If you’re looking to make a night of it, tune in a little earlier for “Secret Societies of Hollywood,” produced by Prometheus Entertainment, airing on E! from 8PM-10PM ET/PT. It takes a look into the secret world of underground sex clubs and ultra-exclusive celebrity parties that only cater to the ultimate VIP scene. Now that’s a double-feature to kill for!
