* ''Manga/DetectiveConan''. It's a murder-mystery series. Occasionally subverted. In one episode, the "body" in question was a torn-up ''flag''.

* ''{{Waking The Dead}}'' did this, albeit with very old bodies.

* ''{{Quincy}} ME'' was a ForensicDrama about a medical examiner (Jack Klugman) who solved murders through forensic investigations. The show always opened with a person dying of [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident seemingly ordinary causes]].

* ''TruCalling'' had a corpse supernaturally call out to the title character each week, which sent her back in time to try to prevent his or her death.
* ''MidsomerMurders'', of course, what with its habit of at least two murders per episode.
* ''WalkerTexasRanger'' made a lovely habit of putting murders into each episode at least one way or another. People run off the road, airplane pilots killed, person who got in the way of a scheme gets axed, professional hitman at large, et cetera, et cetera. You would be ''very'' hard pressed to find a murder-free episode out of the whopping 220 that aired.

* You know ''{{Smallville}}'' gets a lot of this when their wiki has a [[http://smallville.wikia.com/wiki/Season_1_body_count body count]] page.
* ''SixFeetUnder'', the HBO series set in a funeral home, started every episode with an ordinary person going about their life and having it rudely interrupted in some disastrous way. In most episodes this was done to great comedic effect.

* ''PoliceSquad'', a one season comedy starring Leslie Nielson, [[LampshadeHanging hung a lampshade]] on this by opening every episode with a "special guest star" who [[DeathByCameo died]] moments after appearing on camera.

* In the ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' series, the player character always seems to wind up solving a murder case, despite not specifically being a homicide lawyer. This is even lampshaded the one time they're dealing with a theft instead of a homicide. And that one gets a body pretty quick anyway.
