Many people are jealous of others who live in mansions, but if they knew the inside story, people might not be so green with envy. Hosted by journalist Christopher Mason -- a longtime chronicler of high society and its duplicitous affairs -- "Behind Mansion Walls" describes what happens when family dynasties implode, high-stakes divorces end in bloodshed and rich decadence turns to death. The docuseries details the criminal investigations of oil tycoons, real estate moguls, self-made billionaires and privileged heiresses, aided by expert testimony, stylized re-creations, and narration from the victim's first-person perspective.

While other true crime dramas follow a murder investigation to the ultimate end of revealing who committed the crime, this series leaves the conviction to the viewers. The stories are told by the deceased victims using fictional dialogue and a narrator who knows everything, including who is responsible, but doesn't come out and say it. Instead, as the mystery unfolds, the viewer is left to pick out the clues given throughout the show by friends, family members, and law enforcement officials and come to the conclusion on their own.
