Premiering Thursday, June 11, “Women in Prison” airs on Investigation Discovery, America’s leading mystery and suspense network. It is a new hour-long, three-episode docu-series.
Indiana Women’s Prison houses 600 inmates with maximum security. Consequently, it is the perfect backdrop for this cast of surprisingly relatable and bold characters. The program explores the lives of women who, often after one tragic misstep, end up on the wrong side of the law.
One episode profiles a suburban soccer mom. Another features a high school art teacher and a Preacher’s daughter. These unlikely convicts confess to their shocking crimes and reveal how they’ve learned to survive in this hostile, alien environment.
This genre-breaking format features two women in each episode. It mixes the reality of prison life with dramatic recreations of how each of the characters ended up behind bars. Most of all, viewers get to know these women and learn what crimes each committed. In the end, viewers experience shocking revelations in each episode.
“Women in Prison is incredibly honest, raw and emotionally engaging in a way that really sets the series apart,” said Henry Schleiff at Discovery.
