Al Capone. John Dillinger. Bonnie and Clyde. The Krays.
They are the stuff of legend.
In Natural Born Outlaws, infamous villains like Machine Gun Kelly, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Baby Face Nelson show how hard, mean, and desperate you have to be to earn the title of Public Enemy. But for these Tommy-gun toting gangsters, it just comes naturally.
Natural Born Outlaws tells the larger-than-life stories of some of history’s toughest and meanest outlaws. The series recounts the gruesome shootouts, audacious robberies and scandalous kidnappings that made each outlaw famous. It details the deadly manhunts, stakeouts and ambushes orchestrated by the intense and dedicated lawmen intent on getting them at all costs.
Using a combination of dramatic re-enactments, in-depth interviews, and motion comic animations, Natural Born Outlaws sweeps you along for the rise and fall of history’s most notorious criminals, and the thrilling cat-and-mouse chase that ended their reigns of terror. From the mean streets of Chicago to the dark alleys of London, Natural Born Outlaws draws a vivid picture of those notorious criminal masterminds whose smarts, grit and guts made them a terrifying force to be reckoned with, and introduces the determined, intelligent lawmen ready to risk everything – even their lives – to bring them down.
