About Culpable

Culpable is an investigative true crime series from Tenderfoot TV, the creators of Up and Vanished and Atlanta Monster. Culpable is a word that simply means deserving blame, but it tends to take on even deeper meaning in the world of true crime.

In an unsolved case, culpability is typically focused on the culprit(s). But in some cases the source of culpability may be something much deeper – like wrongful convictions, negligent investigations, or even corruption. Culpable may be a broad term, but it’s a consistent theme in the stories we share.
