True crime fans, have you seen these yet?

In case you haven’t heard, Court TV is back in session with Vinnie Politan, the original face of Court TV, as lead anchor.

Politan is an Emmy Award-winning legal journalist who was a popular face on the original Court TV, leading the network’s coverage of the nation’s most compelling trials. A lawyer and former prosecutor, Politan has been covering the world of crime and justice for over 20 years, also hosting legal and news programs on HLN, Sirius XM and most recently, NBC in Atlanta.

In his return to Court TV, Politan brings with him experience covering trials involving Scott Peterson, Michael Jackson, Casey Anthony, Jodi Arias and the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case. Politan was the first to do a national interview with the parents of Trayvon Martin.

In anticipation of Court TV’s return, Politan shared his picks for the three best true crime shows of the year.

1. ‘The Case Against Adnan Syed’

First on our list of true crime shows is “The Case Against Adnan Syed.”

“This is the guy who was convicted of murdering his girlfriend back in high school, [and] has served a whole bunch of time in prison,” shares Vinnie. “And the question is – did he really do it? Didn’t he have an alibi?”

The four-hour docuseries is on HBO.
