The new series examines the lives and deaths of pop culture’s greatest on screen heroes through the eyes of a host who knows what it’s like to be killed off.

Playing Dead is the third series from the Lionsgate Sound network, following the successful launches of true crime shows Surviving El Chapo and A Nation for Thieves.
