Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Michelle Trachtenberg has lined up her next TV project.

The Gossip Girl actor, who famously played the titular character's younger sister Dawn Summers in the aforementioned supernatural show, is set to host Meet, Marry, Murder, a new true-crime docuseries, for US streaming service Tubi.

Consisting of 13 episodes, which will all land on the platform on October 6, the show investigates the true stories of those who were murdered by their partners, featuring interviews with victim's family members, friends, matchmakers and more. Cases include a woman being killed by her estranged husband, and a man who died in a car chase involving his wife and mistress.

It comes from British producer FirstLookTV and digital operator FilmRise. Will Hanrahan, Gillian Carter, Danny Fisher and Max Einhorn are on board as executive producers.

"At Tubi, we are excited to expand our offerings within the true crime genre with the premiere of Meet, Marry, Murder," said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi. "Viewers' fascination with true crime content is ever-growing and we know Meet, Marry, Murder will captivate audiences and keep them at the edge of their seats."

Trachtenberg isn't the only Buffy alum who's gearing up to return to the small screen in the near future, either.
