Burbank, CA � June 13, 2006 � As Sleuth, the 24 hour mystery and crime channel, arrives in 22 million homes nationwide this July, NBC Universal Cable celebrates with a major cross-promotion effort across all of its properties.

Sleuth is headed to Miami for viewers' favorite special episodes on Saturday, July 22nd and Sunday, July 23rd. Kicking off the weekend is an A-Team episode in which the team takes over a Miami beach front hotel, followed by the two hour Miami based pilot of Simon & Simon. Sleuth wraps the day with a mini-marathon with Miami's hottest female marshal Karen Sisco, the premiere of The Bermuda Triangle: Startling New Secrets, and Miami Vice. On Sunday, Sleuth is bringing audiences a full day of Crockett and Tubbs with a Miami Vice Marathon from 7am to 9pm (ET).

"With a film and television library like NBC Universal's available to us, we can give viewers the best mystery and crime storytelling out there," said Dan Harrison, senior vice president emerging networks, NBC Universal Cable Entertainment. "Each month, we will be featuring new films and debuting audience-favorite series of this genre as the channel grows."

Viewers can see the series finale of John Doe, the sci-fi mystery series and the premiere of the new Sleuth series, Courthouse, on Thursday, July 20th. The new series follows the day to day lives of courthouse judges and stars Patricia Wettig, Robin Givens and Nia Peeples. Future episodes will air each Thursday night at 10pm and 1am (ET).

Mondays are filled with murder on Sleuth.
