commentary throughout each case.

The premiere episode of "Final Cut" features the stories of two aspiring young stars, model Kimberly Pandelios and actress Linda Sobek. Though they had never met, both shared the dream of being famous. Their cases are nearly identical: two young women, both blonde and beautiful, both ventured out to a remote location for a photo shoot ... but neither came home. Found buried in shallow graves just miles apart, these girls share more than just a tragic fate — they may also share a murderer.

From young dreamers to successful actors, the City of Angels can be one terrifying place, and "Final Cut" reveals that the cruel side of Hollywood leaves nothing extra on the cutting room floor. "The Killing Fields'" Haing Ngor, famous for being one of only two non-professional actors in history to receive an Oscar, was murdered in cold blood. "The Cosby Show's" child star and a six-year cast member of "The Steve Harvey Show," Merlin Santana, was gunned down while sitting in a car on a Los Angeles street corner. Al Adamson was a master of kitschy, low-budget horror movies, only to find himself a victim in a story that could have come straight from one of his own films. Other cases explored include: Daniel Serrano, a charming plastic surgeon who resorted to industrial-grade lubricant when his supply ran out, leaving devastating results for his clients, including Shawn King, Larry King's wife; Anand Jon, an aspiring fashion superstar — and sexual predator — who lured underage models to his own "Runway of Hell;" and Garrett Warren, a martial arts expert and respected stuntman who was gunned down after opening his front door, but somehow lived to tell the tale.
