Channel 4 to air 60 Days in Jail

Channel 4 has acquired 60 Days in from A+E Networks to be retitled 60 Days In Jail when it airs on Channel 4 this month. The original docu-series follows seven innocent participants who enter the dangerous world of incarceration at the Clark County Jail in Jeffersonville, Indiana, in an effort to expose internal issues and what really happens behind bars. As a result of the facility’s recent corrupt history, Sheriff Jamey Noel has devised a program where seven participants will live among the facility’s general population for 60 days without officers, fellow inmates, or staff knowing their secret. Around-the-clock cameras captured this unparalleled access in an effort to bring problems to light and give viewers a first-hand look as the participants adapt to unfamiliar and terrifying surroundings. 60 Days In Jail gives an inside view of what life is like behind bars, through the eyes of people who have never been charged with a crime or done time.
