Synopsis

The Final 24 is a revealing alternative biography series that unlocks the hidden secrets, psychological flaws and trigger events that led to the tragic deaths of eight global icons. Each episode maps out the final 24 hours of a different celebrity’s life.

Weaving in and out of this central narrative is the celebrity’s back-story, which lays bare the threads of fate that led inextricably from childhood to the moment of death.

Telling interviews with loved ones and confidantes combine with high-end dramatic re-enactments and archival material illuminate these compelling life (and death) stories.

These are no ordinary biographies. These are psychological detective stories attempting to uncover the mystery of why the celebrity died.

If a death reveals a lot about someone’s life, then their last day speaks volumes.
