The First 48 is a U.S. documentary/news magazine television program that was shot in several American cities and gives viewers an inside peek into the world of homicide investigators in real life. Despite frequently following the investigations through to their conclusion, the series typically concentrates on their initial 48 hours, hence the title.
Each episode takes one or more crimes in various places and alternately covers each one, demonstrating how investigators identify suspects using forensic evidence, witness interviews, and other cutting-edge investigative techniques. Most cases are resolved within the first 48 hours, but other issues take longer—days, weeks, months, or even years—to resolve.
After the first 48 is the crime, mystery reality tv show with an IMDb rating of 8.2/10. Exclusive interviews with detectives, prosecutors, defense lawyers, and families of victims are included in After The First 48, a documentary that revisits some of the most compelling cases that were initially covered in The First 48. From the inquiry to the murder trial itself, the verdict, and beyond, After The First 48 takes viewers through the dramatic and intense inside tale.

Taiwan Smart, 21, of Miami, was accused on November 18, 2009, with two charges of second-degree murder for the deaths of his two roommates in Little Haiti. Later, in an episode called “Inside Job,” his tale was broadcast. Evidence later proved that the police had made critical errors during their investigation. A critical witness statement was misinterpreted on the show by The First 48 as well. After being freed in June 2011, Smart filed a false imprisonment lawsuit against the city of Miami. The program first aired on July 15, 2010, and it is still broadcast today without adjustment.

The motion was denied, but the judge acknowledged that the show had made things more difficult.
