Unique to the genre, True Crime Scene combines the suspense of whodunit, with the visceral punch of fly on the wall realism. Each of the six episodes, beginning with a murder scene, offers an examination of clues, interviews with witnesses, and – based on theories put forward during the real investigation – scripted and dramatic reenactments of how the crime may have unfolded. The major, final twist sees the murder recreated as it really happened, and the killer unmasked.
