The "Lockup" franchise has become a staple of the MSNBC schedule, with each series in the franchise taking place in a different prison. This entry is filmed at the Wabash Valley Correctional Facility in the rural Indiana town of Carlisle. The prison's population, 2,200 male inmates, dwarfs the town's population of just several hundred residents. The majority of Wabash's inmates used to come from urban areas, but now they come mainly from rural farming communities, because of the rise of methamphetamine use. Many of the stories in the series revolve around the meth epidemic and the strict sentences that are handed down, including half brothers who are serving 54- and 35-year sentences for various meth-related crimes. Also housed at Wabash are several of Indiana's high-profile murderers.

"How do I solve homicides with no bodies, no evidence and no forensics?" asks special investigator Karsten von Hoesslin, who found himself in such a predicament while trying to piece together the truth behind a quadruple murder at sea. In 2014, cellphone footage from a mysterious address in Fiji goes viral. The 10-minute clip shows four men clinging to wreckage in the middle of the ocean. Then, one by one, the men are brutally shot and killed. No one knows exactly where it happened, why, or who committed these crimes. In "Lawless Oceans," von Hoesslin relentlessly pursues clues and angles, tracks down and interviews eyewitnesses, material witnesses and families of the victims, and seeks the support of fellow experts to determine who is responsible. Along the way -- painting a dark, grim picture of lawless international oceans -- he encounters drug smuggling, people trafficking, illegal fishing, and piracy.
