“For My Man” is a true crime series that features the salacious and shocking stories of women who have been arrested for a crime they did in the name of love. From a killing spree across the mid-west to being an inside informant at the DEA and from murdering an unsupportive mother to robbing fifteen banks in under a year, these women have no limits as to how far they’ll go for their men. And do not be misled; these are not the women you’d expect. They are straight A students, career police officers and once happily married women. These are the stories of the obsessions and weakness that fueled their fall from grace.
Every episode is a love story gone very, very wrong… starting with the sweet and passionate tale of two people falling in love (and lust). Stylized recres pull you deeper into their narrative as the fairytale begins to turn sour. Greed, possessiveness, manipulation, and desperation begin to set in, pulling these women deeper and deeper under the control of their sweetheart- turned-puppet master. Whether it is a man who convinces his love to commit a crime, or a woman who feels she must commit an evil act to save him, every story escalates to a major crime (or a series of crimes) that places our subjects behind bars. Quick cuts, abstract imagery and layered sound design make the tensest moments a pulse-pounding experience.
