Romesh Ranganathan is turning his talents to true crime on a new BBC Two series.

The League of Their Own star has been announced for three-part series The Misinvestigations of Romesh Ranganathan, which will see him take a deeper look into some of the most shocking high-profile deaths.

As well as looking at why the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Tupac Shakur died at such a young age, Romesh will also explore their extraordinary achievements and legacies, as well as why their passing continue to fascinate everyone.

The comedian will also be helped along the way by a new assistant each episode, including criminal psychologists and private detectives.

"We wanted a spin-off for Misadventures and after we discussed Misinterpretations, Miscalculations and Misunderstandings, we finally settled on Misinvestigations," Romesh said.

"It's been really interesting to look into these high-profile deaths and I am very excited for people to see the show, unless of course people don't like it, in which case I will release a statement explaining how I never really believed in the project."

Morgan Roberts, Head of Factual Entertainment at Rumpus Media, added: "Romesh has proved to be a brilliant guide as he's taken us around the world on his Misadventures.

"In this new series he is training his curiosity, wit and sub-optimal investigation skills on extraordinary moments in pop culture as he looks at the life and untimely deaths of some of its greatest icons; exploring not only what happened to them but also why they remain so debated to this day."

The Misinvestigations of Romesh Ranganathan will air on BBC Two later this year.
