E! Entertainment Television is set to take a comedic look at pop culture events through claymation re-enactments in a new half-hour series from the creator of MTV's Celebrity Deathmatch.

Titled Starveillance, the series was one of many announcements made Tuesday by E! Networks president and CEO Ted Harbert during the Television Critics Assn.'s summer press tour at the Ritz-Carlton Huntington Hotel.

Starveillance, from Deathmatch creator Eric Fogel, will give viewers a fly-on-the-wall view of real or possible events involving celebrities as they may have happened, including marriage proposals, intimate bedroom arguments and off-camera antics. E! cited such events as Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes having a chance meeting with Brooke Shields at the hospital and Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore's first date.

The Hollywood Reporter says the half-hour show premieres in January, and the segments also will be shown on broadband channel The Vine @ E! Online and other platforms.
