Netflix 'Heist': Air time, how to watch, cast, trailer and all about true-crime docuseries
'Heist' tells the story of three of the most notorious robberies in recent history and features interviews from the perpetrators
Netflix has a knack for treating its subscribers with amazing stories. The streaming platform has an abundance of true-crime documentaries and docuseries which tell the world about all the crazy stuff that took place in the past. The genre of true-crime docuseries has been redefined by Netflix because of its wide reach and popularity.
From ‘The Night Stalker’ and ‘Sons of Sams’ to ‘The Keepers’ and ‘The Ripper’, the streaming platform has been giving us a lot of nightmares by showing the true (and sometimes evil) nature of some of the most notorious people in the world. One of the upcoming docuseries also talks about a group that stunned the world by successfully completing three incredibly daring and famous heists.
Titled ‘Heist’, the exciting new docuseries will chronicle the events of three famous heists in recent American history. Every episode of the show will see dramatic enactments of the robbery and will also feature original interviews from the people who did the actual heists. Viewers will also get to see how the perpetrators select their targets and what kind of planning goes into the job.
Interestingly, the people who conducted the jobs will also open up by the errors they made that led the law enforcement agencies straight to the truth. Here’s everything we know about the docuseries.
The upcoming documentary series will be premiering exclusively on Netflix on Wednesday, July 14, at 3 am ET.

Viewers will see how the subjects select their targets, the meticulous planning that goes into the job, the sweet glory of success, and the boneheaded errors that lead investigators straight to the truth. The perpetrators sit down for in-depth, frequently emotional conversations, alongside family members, accomplices, and the law enforcement officers who eventually brought them to justice.”
