Plot Synopsis

From Executive Producer Dick Wolf, CRIMINAL CONFESSIONS is a one-hour docuseries that delves into the psychological showdown that transpires inside actual police interrogation rooms between investigators and suspects and dissects what it takes to yield a confession. Each hour-long episode takes viewers through the emotional twists and turns of a real homicide case from the 911 call to the crime scene and leading up to the interrogation room where detectives corner their prime suspect. The police officers and detectives will walk us through their strategy while interviews with the suspects' and victims' friends and family shed light on the heartbreaking details, taking viewers on an emotional journey with the hope of finding justice. In every case, the interrogating officer will "break" the suspect and get a shocking reveal of what led to the atrocious crime.
