In this investigative medical documentary series, we look at the lives and deaths of the biggest names in entertainment history. Through a combination of interviews with family and friends, archive footage and dramatic reconstructions, we tell these stories and unpick the- sometimes mysterious- circumstances around their deaths.

In 2007, Canadian champion wrestler Chris Benoit, killed his pro-wrestler wife and their 7-year-old son, before hanging himself, in a double murder-suicide that shocked the world. At the time, Chris Benoit was one of the premier athletes in the whole of the WWE.

He was widely regarded as one of the best technical wrestlers of any generation. At 40-years-old, he had been a champion within the organisation numerous times and was still drawing in huge audiences. So why would a man at the top of his game, who had achieved his lifelong dream of becoming a successful wrestler, kill himself and his family?

This drama-documentary charts the run-up to Chris Benoit’s death and investigates the tragic events that led to his mysterious suicide.

Please note it is ITV protocol that all our cast have a DBS certificate prior to filming. Therefore, if you submit your self for the role we will assume you are DBS checked or willing to source this for yourself.
