About 1,500 dead bodies come through Mike Murphy's office each year, from celebrity overdoses to bodies mysteriously found dried and withered in the desert.  But such is the job of the county coroner.  And it's caught the attention of TV producers: the county recently signed a reality show deal with Discovery Studios.  But Murphy says it won't be like other reality shows - he wants to use the TV public to solve unsolved cases.  So will they show corpses on TV?  And how will the coroner balance the fine line between appealing television and respect for the dead?  Mike Murphy joins us for an in-depth look at his new TV series.
