A&E Network presents “60 Days In,” an 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 program where 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. “60 Days In” is a warts-and-all view of what life is like behind bars, through the eyes of people who have never been charged with a crime or done time.
From A&E’s press release, January 2017… A&E Network’s hit series “60 Days In” enters Atlanta’s Fulton County Jail for two new explosive seasons at one of the most dangerous facilities in the country. With five times the number of inmates as previous seasons, rampant drug problems, a powerful gang population and the constant threat of violence, innocent participants plunge deeper into this dangerous world of incarceration. The two groups of participants were shot in back-to-back phases and will air over two seasons. The highly anticipated third season will consist of nine undercover participants who enter the program to gain a deeper understanding of the criminal justice system. “60 Days In” was cable’s #1 unscripted crime series in 2016 among adults 25-54, 18-49 and total viewers in Live+7 viewing. Produced by Lucky 8 TV, “60 Days In: Atlanta” premieres Thursday, March 2 at 9PM ET/PT on A&E.
