If you give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day; if you teach a man to fish, he'll eat for a lifetime; but if you teach a man to steal others' fish, he'll eat for a lifetime without having to spend all his time fishing. Heist and theft shows that follow this philosophy!
These shows tell the stories of criminals who have been recruited to help the police, FBI, and other law enforcement agencies to catch other bad guys. They often have or develop a close relationship with their law enforcement partner.
