Some shows focus on real crimes rather than fictional ones. This isn't the same as RippedFromTheHeadlines, where the show creates a fictional counterpart to a real crime, complete with new fictional people to be part of it. TrueCrime shows aim to dramatize an event (more-or-less) exactly, with names only changed if the victims or their families request it.

* ''Fanfic/{{Snapped}}'' is largely about wives who kill their husbands, though there have been cases shown where women kill their boyfriends' wives/[=SOs=], daughters kill their parents and husbands kill their wives. In most cases, the accused play it up as a crime of passion (or that they were framed or set up by the cops who couldn't find a better suspect) even if the evidence clearly points to premeditation.
