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."
