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 eight-part documentary -- the result of a collaboration with Academy Award-winning directors Robert Redford ("Ordinary People") and Alex Gibney ("Taxi to the Dark Side") -- revisits compelling capital murder cases in the U.S., detailing the twists and turns involved in each as a thought-provoking exercise on the death penalty and the American justice system.

On May 30, 2005, 18-year-old Natalee Holloway disappeared on the island of Aruba. Her case resulted in a worldwide media frenzy, yet Natalee's body was never found, and her father, Dave Holloway, has never stopped searching for answers.

This true crime series follows Dave and T.J. Ward, the family's longtime private investigator, in the latest and perhaps final chapter of the decade-long pursuit to uncover what really happened to Natalee.
