You’ve probably heard of white collar crimes. You may have heard of blue collar crimes. But pink collar crimes? That’s a term which will surely gain more traction in the lexicon, thanks to the new CBS true crime show, Pink Collar Crimes. True crime fans probably already have this show on their radar, and have their DVRs set for the Saturday, July 28 premiere, airing at 8 p.m. ET. But what are pink collar crimes exactly?
For the answer to this question, I think I’ll defer to a true expert, and a host of the show, attorney and author Marcia Clark. Pink collar crimes constitute “one of the fastest growing crime waves in America,” the former prosecutor, who was famously on the prosecution team for the O.J. Simpson trial, explained in a CBS video. She described the show’s subjects as “PTA moms and society women who brazenly break the law.”
Jon Kroll, an executive producer on the show, continued the explanation in the same video. “Pink collar crimes are crimes committed by women who are housewives, PTA moms, school volunteers,” he said. Another executive producer, Sharon Liese, noted that the research the team behind the show conducted shows that more women are being drawn to the kinds of criminal acts being highlighted in the show, from embezzlement and money laundering to bank robbery.
