60 Days In

60 Days In

This extreme reality TV show involves locking up eight innocent civilians in prison for two months. No one in the prison - neither the inmates nor the officers - are told of their actual background. The inmates are told that the new prisoners are being shot for a show about first-time inmates.

One out

One of the eight volunteers soon dropped out after being punched by an inmate. However, the producer of the show believes that the result was worth taking the risk.

Reasons for volunteering

Reasons for volunteering

The volunteers of the show have their own reasons for participating. One of them is a social worker, another an ex-marine who thinks this experience can help become a DEA agent, and there's another man who wants to get a feel of the kind life his brother is leading in jail.

A lot revealed

The participants helped in uncovering a lot of details about prison life. It was discovered that drugs were more easily available inside than they were found outside on the streets.

Scams uncovered

The participants also helped the jail in getting their hands on a tonne of information such as how contraband weapons are made. They also uncovered a scam that was going on in the jail. The scam was that the new inmates would not be allowed to use the bathroom safely unless they give some sort of a bribe.

Counselling and training

The participants were provided proper counselling and training before being sent off into jail.

Safe phrase

Safe phrase

The participants were provided a safe phrase, 'I really miss the coffee', which was meant to work as an indication that they wanted to be removed from a potentially dangerous situation. They could also put a towel on their heads to send the same indication to the people watching the footage - which by the way, was watched all round the clock.
