"Women in Prison" -- trumpeted by Investigation Discovery as a real-life version of the popular drama "Orange Is the New Black" -- profiles a series of inmates at Indiana Women's Prison. The groundbreaking format features two women in each episode and mixes the reality of prison life with dramatic re-creations of how each ended up behind bars. The maximum security facility is the backdrop for a cast of relatable, unlikely convicts -- a suburban soccer mom, a high school art teacher, a preacher's daughter -- who confess to shocking crimes and reveal how they've learned to survive in a hostile, alien environment.
