Lockup: Women Behind Bars – Season 1 (2010)

This collection focuses on women’s prisons in America and the unique challenges female inmates face while serving time for crimes big and small. Lockup (and the other series in the franchise) explore jail and prison facilities throughout the United States, profiling notable inmates, incidents, and prison operations. A typical episode usually follows one or two inmates as they attend disciplinary hearings, receive visits from family, and interact with other inmates. In some episodes, inmates are provided with personal video cameras (“inmate cams”) to use in their cells for recording their thoughts.
