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.

* ''CityConfidential'' gives a travelogue introduction each week to a different U.S. city, its "in" crowd and its culture each week, and then documents a murder case that was particularly scandalizing to that city. The SoapOpera aspect is emphasized, and the BadassBaritone narration is mildly humorous.

* ''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.

Both types make use of CrimeReconstruction. Within both types, broadcast-network offerings tend to be made by the news division. They're what hourlong PrimeTime news shows often decay into; true investigative journalism costs serious money and carries the risks of speaking truth to power while TrueCrime retrospectives are just about the cheapest thing you can put out and still call "news programming".
