America’s maximum security prisons are a world unto themselves: a realm of chaos and danger where long stretches of monotony are interrupted by explosions of sheer terror. The groundbreaking series LOCKUP: RAW goes inside the gates to get shockingly candid interviews with some of the country’s most notorious criminals—and the guards who are charged with trying to control them. In prisons from Alaska to Tennessee, see firsthand inmates’ survival strategies, the code they live by, and the perils they face. The series features previously unaired, sometimes unedited footage, of convicts who have nothing to lose.
LOCKUP: RAW also shares, for the first time, what it was like for the show’s producers to work behind bars: jeopardizing their own personal safety, working amid the deafening clamor of prison, and sitting face to face with unpredictable, violent felons. Each producer has a unique story to tell, and viewers will feel they are right beside them, risking their lives to get the story.
