LAS VEGAS (AP) - A reality TV show featuring life, death and the Clark County coroner’s office search for next-of-kin is set to debut on a cable network.

The one-hour pilot called “Postmortem in Vegas” is set to show at 7 p.m. Wednesday on the Lifetime Movie Network.

Coroner Mike Murphy said Tuesday the program will give the viewing public a behind-the-scenes look at what staff members do in the busy Las Vegas coroner-medical examiner office.

The show was taped in 2011 after the Clark County Commission approved a production deal calling for the county to get $5,000 per episode and for producers not to show personally identifiable characteristics.

Murphy says he hopes to teach people about dangerous lifestyles, and maybe put names to unidentified bodies to bring closure to families.
