A&E skeds ‘Mysteries’

New show to premiere after 'Biography'

NEW YORK — A&E has wrapped up the branding of its Monday-through-Friday primetime schedule with the announcement that, starting Monday, June 29, the network will create a 10 p.m. “Mysteries To Die For” umbrella lineup.

June 29 is also the premiere date for the new series of 9 p.m. documentary hours, leading out of A&E’s most successful ongoing one-hour series “Biography,” at 8 p.m.

For the first month of the mystery lineup, A&E plans a schedule of weekly stunts, starting with five episodes of the Hercule Poirot series from June 29 to July 3, followed by five Sherlock Holmes hours (July 6-10), five featuring Inspector Morse (July 13-20) and five with Miss Marple (July 20-24).

On Monday, July 27, the regular checkerboard schedule begins, with Poirot slated for Monday, Morse on Tuesday, Holmes on Wednesday, Marple on Thursday and a rotation of other detectives on Friday.

These series are all British-produced, but A&E has begun commissioning American-based mystery programs, starting with the two-hour “Murder in a Small Town,” starring Gene Wilder as an amateur sleuth, and a Hallmark Entertainment adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s “Murders in the Rue Morgue.”
