Gildart Jackson Hosts Series as the Mansion Steward, Butler Giles
What do a former NFL cheerleader, a bounty hunter, a nurse and flight attendant all have in common? They are all putting their investigative skills to the test along with nine other guests in the new murder mystery competition, “Whodunnit?,” premiering SUNDAY, JUNE 23 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
“Whodunnit?” is an interactive series that pits 13 amateur sleuths against each other where each week the guests will use a variety of crime scene investigation techniques to meticulously uncover evidence that will ultimately reveal whom among them is the killer. Some will form alliances and others will choose to go it alone just to get them closer to the grand prize. The guests will reside on a glamorous estate called Rue Manor with a steward, Butler Giles (Gildart Jackson), and each week must solve a new crime in order to advance in the game. Failure to solve the crime will lead to a guest’s demise, until only three are left. In the final episode, one guest will unmask the killer and take home the $250,000 reward.
British actor Gildart Jackson hosts “Whodunnit?” playing Rue Manor’s resident steward, Butler Giles. Jackson has appeared in various television series, including “Charmed” (Gideon) and ABC’s “General Hospital” (Simon Prentiss.) He recently starred in the critically acclaimed feature film “YOU,” opposite Brenda Strong and Allison Mach, directed by his wife, Melora Hardin (NBC’s “The Office.) Jackson currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and two daughters.
