This documentary series takes viewers inside prisons and jails across America and around the world, offering rarely obtained and comprehensive access into these locations. The show profiles the inmates and employees who work at these facilities, highlighting their day-to-day experiences and interactions within the confines of prison. By bringing audiences the real, raw stories of life behind bars, this program aims to provide a truly authentic and in-depth look inside the complex criminal justice system.
The behind-the-scenes series goes international, taking viewers behind bars in prisons in countries around the world. From an abandoned, underground execution chamber in Serbia where prisoners faced death by firing squad to a special room for conjugal visits in a Belgian facility, cameras hunt out the details of prisoner life in other countries.
Cameras go behind the crumbling walls of San Quentin State Prison in California, where overcrowding and lack of modernization are blamed for an ever-increasing number of inmate attacks on guards. The facility, which has four cell blocks containing more than 800 prisoners each, also houses a number of death row inmates. As one guard bluntly explains, the attitude of many of the prisoners on death row is "You can only kill me once," so officers are on constant guard against attack.
