Plot Synopsis

MY LIFE IS MURDER is a one-hour mystery series that follows ex-homicide detective Alexa Crowe, who uses her unique skills and insights into the darker quirks of human nature to provoke, comfort and push the right buttons as she unravels the truth behind the most baffling crimes. As Alexa unmasks the hidden passions and dangerous secrets lurking in the energetic, ever-changing city of Melbourne, she is ably assisted by ambitious twenty-something Madison Feliciano -- who is not so quietly learning from the best -- and her former boss, Detective Inspector Keiran Hussy, who enlists Alexa on his trickiest cases. MY LIFE IS MURDER had its U.S. premiere on Monday, August 5, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Acorn TV released the first two episodes. Additional episodes are released on subsequent Mondays, include:

"Feet of Clay" (U.S. premiere on Monday, August 26): A year ago, beautiful young PR assistant Christina Cortez was killed in a hit-and-run by a drunk driver who turned herself in a few days later. It seems like a tragic -- but closed -- case. But who sent Christina the mysterious message that prompted her to be at that fatal spot in the first place? Alexa investigates Christina's boss, glamourous social-media queen Morgana Finch, for answers.

"Another Bloody Podcast" (U.S. premiere on Monday, September 2): When a true-crime podcast blames Kieran for the lack of progress on an investigation into the killing of a young gay man, who was found with a cult-like symbol on his forehead, Alexa is determined to help Kieran out. It soon becomes clear that not only does the podcaster want to remain anonymous, but that he or she knows intimate details about the victim.

"Old School" (U.S. premiere on Monday, September 9): Alexa revisits better days -- or at least younger ones -- after her beloved high-school teacher is crushed to death by a boat rack.

"Remains to Be Seen" (U.S. premiere on Monday, September 16): While jogging one morning, Alexa collapses on the bridge named in honor of her late husband. As she confronts her mortality, Kieran takes the opportunity to hand her the case of Patrick Mandel, a gambling addict found buried in an already occupied grave. Alexa investigates the victim's girlfriend -- who is suspiciously a funeral director.

"Fake Empire" (U.S. premiere on Monday, September 23): When Kieran presents Alexa with another unsolved murder -- a nurse stabbed in the back a week after proposing to his girlfriend -- Alexa declines until Kieran mentions the involvement of clairvoyant Chloe Angel, who knows details about the case not released to the public. Ever the skeptic, Alexa is determined find the killer and prove that Chloe is a phony.

"Mirror, Mirror" (U.S. premiere on Monday, September 23): As Alexa's birthday approaches, Kieran gives her an early present: the case of a plastic surgeon obsessed with getting her own cosmetic procedures, who died after self-administering an anti-wrinkle drug she developed. Alexa questions the husband-and-wife team that own the clinic where the victim worked.
