In this investigative medical documentary series we look at the lives and deaths of the biggest names in American entertainment history. Through a combination of interviews with family and friends, archive footage and dramatic reconstructions, we tell these stories and unpick the- sometimes mysterious circumstances surrounding their deaths.

Billy Mays' success story is one of the American dream. Having started off as a Boardwalk salesman to then climbing the career ladder on the home shopping network, Billy became a household name across the US due to his incredible sales technique but also for his distinguishable beard and booming voice. Sadly his life was cut short at the age of 50 and there has been speculation around his death ever since.

Autopsy will explore the incredible life story of Billy Mays' achievements as well as investigating the final days leading up to his untimely death.
