’Til Death Do Us Part will be Court TV’s first-ever scripted series, the network said Wednesday.

Director John Waters will star as “The Groom Reaper,” guiding viewers through the true stories of doomed marriages that end with one spouse murdering the other.

Court TV said director Jeff Lieberman (Squirm, Blue Sunshine, Just Before Dawn, Satan's Little Helper) “crafts each episode as a mini-horror movie, with the ominous music and vertiginous camera angles of the genre’s over-the-top style.”

“Taking the leap into scripted series iscompletely new for Court TV, and ’Til Death Do Us Part is an audacious series -- a little dark, very edgy and totally unique,” Court TV general manager of programming and marketing Marc Juris said in a prepared statement.

“This series really pushes the boundaries, which is why John Waters is the perfect star: Being provocative is what he does best,” he added.
