Infamy: When Fame Turns Deadly Premiere
What is this show about?
Each episode will explore the mystery and motivations behind high-profile celebrity crimes, exposing the dark side of notoriety and explore what happens when treachery, jealously, and greed lead to tragedy.
This season’s cases include the assassination of NBA player Lorenzen Wright and the investigation into his shocking death; the mysterious shooting death of hip-hop artist Young Greatness in his hometown of New Orleans; a runway model found dead at the bottom of a swimming pool; and the assassination of a popular Chicago radio personality by someone no one expected.
Monica is the host of this show, which explores the dark side of the American Dream by recording untold real crime stories about basketball players, rappers, models, and other celebrities who paid a high price for fame.
This is Monica’s first time hosting a true-crime show. She’s been a force in the music industry for for two decades, having signed her first record deal at the age of twelve. From her debut album “Miss Thang,” released in 1995, she became the youngest female to have two #1 back-to-back hits on Billboard’s R&B chart. Monica is also the first artist to achieve three consecutive #1 Billboard singles, putting her in the company of legends like Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, James Brown, and Marvin Gaye.
