This hit crime drama is about illegal money laundering which focuses on the Lake of the Ozarks region in Missouri. Marty Byrde is a penny-pinching money manager of Chicago who is also a top money launderer of a Mexican drug cartel. When he shifts to Ozark with his family, he gets more entangled with the area’s crime world.
His wife Wendy is even more ruthless when it comes to inventing new ways of money laundering despite the pressure of law enforcement and local criminals. Also, the incidents they get into are too dangerous to come out safely.

3. Sky Rojo-
From the director of ‘Money Heist’- Alex Pina, we get another pulp frictional drama that is all about violence and sensational acts. Besides lots of gorgeous people doing bad things to each other, this series gives us three leading ladies.
These three main characters are former sex workers who are on the run from a club on the Canary Islands on their way to freedom and happy life.
‘Sky Rojo’ contains a lot of adult content like the extreme portrayal of drug consumption and sex which does not make it a conquering hit like ‘Money Heist’. But with Veronica Sanchez, Lali Esposito, and Yany Prado starring the leading women, this show is a very engaging one for adults. It premiered on March 19, 2021, and ran for two seasons with another one under development.
4. White Lines-
Another masterpiece from Alex Pina. Alex seems never to get enough of drugs, money, and mother. This show is more about a murder mystery than a heist though. The plot is centered around Ibiza, the Spanish getaway for British clubbers looking for sun and fun. After twenty years of her superstar DJ brother Axel’s death, Zoe sets off for Ibiza to investigate his murder.
The narration of the plot follows two-time lines one of which features Zoe reconnecting with their old friends who are still involved in the world of drugs and cash and the other showing Alex providing clues about what ultimately led to his downfall. Viewers will enter into a serious mystery drama with some hilarious moments to ease the tension.
The show premiered on May 15, 2020. In the role of Zoe, we find the actress Laura Haddock.
Ending this list with a docuseries presenting true crime reports. After watching ‘Money Heist’ and the above dramas and living in a world of fictional criminals, this show will bring you straight into your real world to find out that it is no less dangerous and dramatic than the fictional one.
‘Heist’ consists of six episodes each of which tell true wild stories of three big idiosyncratic crimes, for example, a Kentucky bourbon-theft ring. These true stories are often narrated by larger-than-life personalities besides being reenacted.
The docuseries was released on July 14, 2021, and was directed by Derek Doneen, Nick Frew, and Martin Desmond Roe.
