Tuesdays at 8:30pm
In medicine, they call it the 'critical hour', in criminal investigations, they call it The First 48 hours. Ask any detective - they will tell you that if they don't have a lead, a suspect or an arrest within 48 hours, their chances of solving the case are cut in half. In a visual style that feels more like a TV drama than a verite reality show,
The First 48 follows homicide detectives during these initial critical hours as they race against time to solve their cases. The hour-long program follows various detectives of a few select homicide teams as they track breaking cases - each with a running clock that builds pace as the 48 hours inexorably expires.
