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.

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.
