US prison experiment 60 Days In, which has previously screened on Pay TV, has its Free to Air debut at SBS VICELAND next week.
All episodes will also be available to stream at SBS on Demand.
In this ground-breaking experiment, a group of innocent people surrender their freedom and volunteer to be locked up as convicted criminals – willingly entering the dangerous world of incarceration in an effort to see if they can survive life in jail.
For 60 days, the participants live among the facility’s general population without officers, fellow inmates, or staff knowing their secret. Around the clock cameras capture this unparalleled access to the jail as they document the extraordinary personal journeys of the participants and bring problems within the system to light – all the while giving the viewers a firsthand, unfiltered look at life behind bars.
8:30pm Friday, 30 August on SBS VICELAND
