'KAK' makes her much-anticipated return to television as the host of 'Behind Mansion Walls' on Foxtel’s Crime & Investigation Network, premiering on Wednesday, December 11 at 7.30pm.
The engaging 13 x 60 minute series explores the mysterious real life cases of greed, betrayal and murder lurking within the walls of some of the world’s wealthiest homes.
Throughout the series, Kerri-Anne will lead viewers through stories of murder and mystery on a grand scale, where the victims and suspects include oil tycoons, real estate moguls and heirs to family fortunes.
From millionaires who have paid blood money to eradicate their enemies, to spoilt rich kids who have murdered family members for cash, to family dynasties that have imploded, Behind Mansion Walls shares the fascinating stories of crimes that have unfolded behind the veil of wealth.
In episode one, Kerri-Anne introduces viewers to the Skakel and Bierenbaum cases.
When 15 year old Martha Moxley was found beaten to death in her own backyard in the exclusive enclave of Belle Haven, Connecticut, on Halloween Eve 1975, the residents were shocked. The police focused their attention on the Moxley’s neighbours, Tommy and Michael Skakel, who were part of one of the most powerful families on the East Coast – and cousins to the Kennedy family.
High-flying plastic surgeon Dr Robert Bierenbaum and his wife Gail lived the glamorous life in their Upper East Side apartment in Manhattan. But in the summer of 1985, Bierenbaum reported his wife missing. He told police she’d gone to Central Park for the afternoon. This Manhattan mystery would take fifteen years to solve.
And in an Australian case, in episode three, Kerri-Anne presents the case of the disappearance of Sydneysider Kerry Whelan. Remember it?
The wife of a multi-millionaire company executive, Whelan disappeared on her way to a beauty appointment in Sydney in May 1997. The case sparked Australia's greatest police manhunt. As hopes for Kerry began to fade, a surprising suspect emerged. Bruce Burrell was a respectable advertising executive with a bunch of well-to-do friends, including the Whelans.
'Behind Mansion Walls' is produced by Beyond Productions and is exclusive to Crime & Investigation Network.
'Behind Mansion Walls' starts Wednesday, December 11 at 7.30pm EDT on CI Network.
