CBS All Access orders comedy crime doc

ViacomCBS-owned SVoD service CBS All Access has ordered a comedic documentary series that follows the real-life search for a Canadian man who went missing in the 1930s.

For Heaven’s Sake blends comedy and crime documentary formats in a bid to uncover the truth of what happened to Harold Heaven, who mysteriously disappeared from his remote cabin in Ontario, Canada in the winter of 1934.

While local police searched the nearby woods and dredged the adjacent lake, Heaven was never found nor heard from again and the case was unceremoniously closed as a likely suicide.

Eighty-five years later, Heaven’s great-great-nephew Mike Mildon attempts to solve the cold case with the help of his extended family and true-crime-obsessed best friend Jackson Rowe (Trophy Husbands), with whom he co-created the series.

Muse Entertainment will produce in association with Funny or Die, CBS Television Studios and Canada’s CBC.

Mildon and Rowe will exec produce alongside Tony Yacenda, Dan Perrault, Funny or Die exec VP Joe Farrell, and Muse Entertainment general manager Jonas Prupas and development director Courtney Dobbins. Tim Johnson directs.

It comes after ViacomCBS revealed that CBS All Access is set to be replaced by Paramount+, which will roll out as the latest global streaming product in 2021.
