Premise: Many people are jealous of others who live in mansions, but if they knew the inside story, people might not be so green with envy. Hosted by journalist Christopher Mason -- a longtime chronicler of high society and its duplicitous affairs -- ``Behind Mansion Walls'' describes what happens when family dynasties implode, high-stakes divorces end in bloodshed and rich decadence turns to death. The docuseries details the criminal investigations of oil tycoons, real estate moguls, self-made billionaires and privileged heiresses, aided by expert testimony, stylized re-creations, and narration from the victim's first-person perspective.
