Seven sets Autopsy return State of Affairs première for Thursdays

Seven has decided on it’s Thursday line up and it’s half awesome half vomit inducing.

Kicking off the night will be the New drama series State of Affairs

This one stars Katherine Higel as a CIA Analyst  looking for revenge for the murder of her fiancé.  It consists of just 13 episodes which kicked off in November in the US to mixed reviews. Fans of Scandal should check it out.

CIA Analyst Charleston Tucker (Katherine Heigl) still can’t remember what really happens a year ago when the diplomatic convoy she was on was attacked in Kabul. While she and then-Senator Payton (Alfre Woodard) barely made it out alive, Charlie’s fiancé, Payton’s son Aaron (guest star Mark Tallman), wasn’t so lucky.

Today is the one-year anniversary of Aaron’s death; Payton is president, Charlie is her CIA briefer and together they’re faced with a choice – try and avenge Aaron’s death by going after Fatah (guest star Farshad Farahat), the terrorist responsible for the convoy attack, or hold off in favor of taking down his entire network in the future.

9 PM Thursday February 19 on Seven.

It will be followed by a new season of  Autopsy: The Last Days Of. The 3rd season of the show looks at the autopsies of f Elvis Presley, River Phoenix and Nicole Brown Simpson.

 

Armed with their autopsy reports, Dr Richard  Shepherd picks through the indisputable medical facts to reveal an intimate portrait of how each celebrity lived, breathed and ultimately suffered. Alongside his medical testimony, the timeline of events that contributed to their untimely deaths is explored and first hand factual accounts of what actually took place complete the picture.

ELVIS PRESLEY: On the 16th August 1977, Elvis Presley was pronounced dead having been found lying unconscious on the bathroom floor of Graceland. He was just 42. The autopsy states that Elvis died of a cardiac arrhythmia, but almost everyone dies of a cardiac event – the key question is, what caused that arrhythmia?

RIVER PHOENIX: On the 31st October 1993, after an hour at friend Johnny Depp’s exclusive nightclub in Los Angeles, River Phoenix started convulsing. After five seizures in 30 minutes and repeated attempts at resuscitation by paramedics, he was officially pronounced dead. How does the hour he spent at The Viper Room hold the key to understanding why River, a perfectly fit and healthy young man, lost his life so tragically?

NICOLE BROWN SIMPSON: On the 12th June 1994, the bodies of Nicole Brown Simpson, ex-wife of OJ Simpson, and Ron Goldman, a friend, were found stabbed to death on the sidewalk of her west LA home. Despite OJ being arrested and tried for the murders in “the trial of the century”, he was acquitted and even after extensive forensic police investigations no one has ever been found guilty of these horrendous crimes. Why?

AUTOPSY: THE LAST DAYS OF ELVIS PRESLEY premieres Thursday, February 19 at 10pm on Seven, with specials on River Phoenix and Nicole Brown Simpson to follow in subsequent weeks.
