Vote up the best documentary series from Lifetime

You may not know it, but Lifetime is actually responsible for some of the most iconic docuseries/movies of all time. They had America’s Most Wanted, which trucked through the ‘80s as one of the most popular crime shows. They have Unsolved Mysteries, which is exactly the type of lifetime docu-series you would watch when you stayed home sick from school in the ‘90s (which admittedly was terrifying until your parents came home from work).

Today, the current docuseries lifetime movies are breaking boundaries. Sure, some err on the side of silly (let’s all just openly admit we actually do watch Dance Moms) and shows like the Little Women series have helped coin the term "docu-soap," but others are enacting real change. After Surviving R. Kelly unwrapped years of stomach-turning allegations about the famed singer, he was dropped from RCA Records.

This complete list of lifetime docuseries shows and films spans decades and opens up a window into the lives of some of the most interesting people and situations on the planet. Vote up your favorites and vote down the ones you wish were canceled sooner.
