REAL MURDERS OF LOS ANGELES Coming to Oxygen True Crime Hosted By Garcelle Beauvais

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.  

Highlights of cases covered include: 

  • A silent theater operator gunned downed at his own concession stand.
  • A newlywed killed at home by her husband's jilted ex-lover who used their ties to law enforcement to mask their involvement for years. 
  • A curious UCLA student stabbed in the notorious “Manson Tunnel” which leads detectives on a dark journey through the occult. 
  • A former Raiderette and aspiring actress who went to a photo shoot, but never returned.

Named one of People magazine's highly coveted 50 Most Beautiful, Garcelle Beauvais has carved out a dynamic career as a model, actress, author, producer and humanitarian.

She would soon add other major roles, including “The Jamie Foxx Show,” “NYPD Blue,” “Coming to America” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” Beauvais is the doting mother of twin sons Jax and Jaid, as well as her older son, Oliver, who made her a very proud grandmother.
