This show is actually about true stories of murder, however they have actors playing the parts of the parties. They also have actual people from the stories intermingled in the story, such as police officers and family members. Many people who knew the deceased person and the killer talk about what they observed during the time leading up to the murder.
I saw it for the first time last night (story about Addie, who was murdered by her boyfriend in New Orleans) and LOVED it. VERY bizarre story.
It's put together quite well. I look forward to watching the other episodes.
