Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Designed as a companion series to the weekly Oxygen Network reality-crime offering Snapped, the weekly Captured zeroed in on actual crimes that had been solved in whole or in part by a woman or group of women. No matter if the case involved fraud, robbery, kidnapping, rape, or murder, it was essential that a strong, intrepid female (a detective, a parent or friend of the victim, a DA, a repoter etc.) was at the center of the investigation. Each episode concluded with a "Help Us Capture?" segment, inviting viewers to help with ongoing investigations, with clues provided to guide the folks at home in the right direction. Packaged by Jupiter Entertainment, Captured first aired on October 7, 2007.
