Linha Direta (lit. Direct Line) was a Brazil television program broadcast by Globo Network. Similar in style and loosely based on the United States program, America's Most Wanted, this program has also helped the Brazilian authorities apprehend many criminals at large trying to escape justice. Linha Direta ended in 2007.

There are two special editions of the programme: Linha Direta Justiça that presents famous Brazilian crimes, like the Candelária massacre, the death of Josef Mengele and the Jules Rimet theft on Rio de Janeiro, and the Linha Direta Mistério, with famous Brazilian crimes that challenge the science, like the Operação Prato, the legend of the thirteen souls that died on the Joelma fire and cases of the NDE. On all of the three edictions, there were reconstituitions of the facts (with actors) and interviews with journalists, person related with the culprit/victim, etc.
