I (Almost) Got Away With It is an American documentary television series on Investigation Discovery, it debuted on January 12, 2010. The series profiles true stories of people who have committed crimes, and have avoided arrest or capture, but ultimately end up being caught. Many of these people escaped from prisons after being sentenced while others escaped jails they were being held in while awaiting trial. Sometimes they are on the run as little as a few weeks before being caught while other times they remain on the run for years and in a few cases even decades. While on the run, some of the fugitives do anything from robbing gas stations to stealing Crystal Gayle's tour bus. Many others found a way to build a new life without committing new crimes and successfully remain in hiding for years.
The series was created by executive producer David M. Frank of Indigo Films. Most scenes were not filmed in areas that the stories took place. Many outdoor scenes in this series are filmed at the company's studio on Treasure Island in San Francisco, in the middle of San Francisco Bay. Other outdoor scenes were filmed in northern New Jersey. The series has repeated on Discovery Channel and American Heroes Channel (AHC).
