UK PREMIERE WEDNESDAY 6 APRIL AT 10PM
SEVEN INNOCENT PARTICIPANTS POSE AS PRISONERS IN AN UNPRECEDENTED AND HIGHLY DANGEROUS PROGRAMME AT ONE OF AMERICA’S TOUGHEST CORRECTIONAL FACILITIES
February 15, 2016 – Crime + Investigation® (CI) will premiere The Jail: 60 Days In – an unprecedented new, original docu-series following seven innocent participants who enter the dangerous world of incarceration at the Clark County Jail in Jeffersonville, Indiana, in an effort to expose internal issues and what really happens behind bars. As a result of the facility’s recent corrupt history, Sheriff Jamey Noel has devised a programme where the seven participants will live among the facility’s general population for 60 days without officers, fellow inmates, or staff knowing their secret.
Around-the-clock cameras captured this unparalleled access in an effort to bring problems to light and give viewers a first-hand look as the participants adapt to unfamiliar and terrifying surroundings. The Jail: 60 Days In is a candid view of what life is like behind bars, through the eyes of people who have never been charged with a crime or done time. This 11-part series will premiere in the UK on Wednesday 6 April at 10pm.
Sheriff Jamey Noel says: After recently taking office, it was no secret that the Clark County Jail had problems and we needed to take quick control. The only way to truly understand what was going on in the jail was to implement innocent participants into the system to provide first-hand unbiased intelligence. These brave volunteers helped us identify critical issues within our system that undercover officers would not have been able to find. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the success of this inaugural programme.
