U.S. net Syfy is teaming up with Catfish: The TV Series producer Relativity Television to develop Hackers, an unscripted series that will focus on real-life cyber crimes.

Hackers will aim to use sophisticated and groundbreaking graphics to illustrate how a computer network is broken into, reenacting the crimes of actual hackers and featuring interviews with the criminals and law enforcement agents involved with each scenario.

Each episode will include “profiles and professional secrets of the hacker,” according to Syfy.

Relativity Television’s Tom Forman and Brad Bishop are executive producers.
