Court TV announced its first scripted series Wednesday: a “Twilight Zone”-style anthology hosted by cult film director John Waters and expected to premiere next year.

In “‘Til Death Do Us Part,” Mr. Waters stars as “The Groom Reaper,” guiding viewers through stories of doomed marriages, each ending in murder and based on an actual crime. The series creator is another cult director, Jeff Lieberman (“Just Before Dawn,” “Satan’s Little Helper”).

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