Very Bad Men is a crime docudrama that is produced by Make Believe Media and is showcased on the Investigation Discovery channel. Each half an hour episode focuses on a real life crime by some of the most notorious criminals that have ever been apprehended.

There are three different perspectives in each episode from the victims or relatives, the perpetrator and the justice system. The show also features re-enactments of the crime while the story unfolds.

The first side to be featured is the side of the victim and the crime is narrated from the very begin. If the victim did not survive then the story is told through friends and relatives of the victim. Through the eyes of the victim it is told how they met the perpetrator, any time that they spent with them, the crime itself and the impact that it has had on the victim and their family.

The whole criminal process is also featured and this includes candid interviews with the detectives and police officers that worked the case. The investigation starts with the recognition of the crime and the clues that leads to the identification of the criminal. It shows the forensics, stake-outs and even obstacles that help track down the suspect and ends with the arrest.

If possible, an interview with the perpetrator is held either after conviction or during the trial process. If the suspect has avoided arrest or met their demise during apprehension, then family members and friends speak on their behalf. This part of the show highlights the crime from their perspective and typically explains why they committed the crime. It is their chance to show any remorse they might have or is some cases still profess their innocence.
