Cry Wolfe combines the work of veteran private eye Brian Wolfe and Investigation Discovery's signature dramatizations to create a hybrid reality/procedural-crime series. It's inspired by actual cases investigated by Wolfe and his assistant, Janine McCarthy, and whether the target is a cheating spouse, dishonest employee, or scammer, each half-hour episode follows the two from the initial client consultation to evidence-gathering stages and finally a confrontation with the accused. Wolfe, a no-nonsense guy with a thick Boston brogue, conducts field work using an arsenal of tried-and-true P.I. tricks; McCarthy picks up the data trail left on the Internet; and re-enactments give each case life, disclosing a shadowy world where things aren't always as they seem.
