The streaming service CBS All Access has placed an order for a true crime comedy docuseries titled For Heaven’s Sake. The series was created by Mike Mildon and Jackson Rowe (Trophy Husbands), who also star in the series, which attempts to solve the 85-year old case of Mildon’s missing great-great-uncle.
Here’s the synopsis:
The series will follow the search for Harold Heaven, who mysteriously disappeared from his remote cabin in Ontario, Canada, in the winter of 1934. While local police searched the nearby woods and dredged the adjacent lake, Harold was never found nor heard from again. The case was unceremoniously closed as a likely suicide. 85 years later, his great-great-nephew, Mike, attempts to solve the case, with the help of his extended family and true-crime-obsessed best friend, Jackson.
Julie McNamara, executive vice president and head of programming for CBS All Access, said:
“The true-crime genre may never be the same as best friends Mike and Jackson rely on their real-life bond and total lack of crime-solving experience to try and figure out what happened to Mike’s great-great uncle Harold. We couldn’t be in better hands than with this hilarious duo.”
This sounds funny, crazy, and super interesting. It’s a cool angle that the hosts actually have a personal connection to the case. I can’t wait to see if it gets solved. Does this sound like an intriguing docuseries to you?
