Frozen in Time

Starring Maureen McCormick of The Brady Bunch fame, a collector and nostalgia enthusiast; along with interior designer Dan Vickery, the series follows the duo as they overhaul Southern California homes that are stuck in a design time warp.

Dan brings the structures up-to-date, while Maureen sources beautiful decade-specific pieces that give the tired homes a refreshed look.

Each stunning design will preserve the best of the past with a wink to the original era, providing families with the stylish, functional spaces they need.

During the series, Dan and Maureen will take on a 1961 property in Laguna Beach that acts as a time capsule with its period furnishings, decades old appliances and original shag carpet.

Inspired by the home's hilltop location, the duo will rearrange the main floor's layout to capitalise on the gorgeous ocean views.

Modern elements with vintage flair, including retro-look appliances, a funky tile backsplash and iconic period light fixtures, round out the breathtaking design.

Throughout the season, Maureen and Dan will tackle pastel tiled bathrooms, wood paneled walls and laminate countertops to help families bring their homes into this century.

In the series premiere, "The 1950 House": Maureen and Dan tackle a couple's 1950 home and want to incorporate its retro feel into the new design.

The duo creates a plan to make the home current while preserving its history, but the homeowners may not be on board.

Maureen and Dan help them find a way to save the beautiful features they love while opening up the layout to make the home more inviting.

Hosted by NBC News correspondent Stephanie Gosk and Emmy-winner Troy Roberts, Killer Motive exposes the sinister motives that drove killers to commit their unspeakable crimes.

They conduct on-the-ground inquiries, returning to the crime scenes and sitting down with victims' friends and family, law enforcement, attorneys, psychologists and even the killers themselves - to uncover the story of how justice was sought and ultimately attained.

At the core of their investigative reporting is the pursuit of a deeper understanding of the relationships behind the horrific killings and of the psychology of the people who committed them.
