Series 2 Premiere

CRIME & INVESTIGATION – Saturday 24 January, 7.30pm

Jail comes back with brand new episodes. Each year more than 14 million people are arrested in the USA, yet most of us have little idea what goes on behind the locked gates and cell doors. This series gains unprecedented access to life inside the walls of America’s jails, charting the trials and tribulations of the professional Corrections Officers and the people they guard. Maintaining order, while handling an unending stream of newly arrested suspects, is the key to managing America’s increasingly crowded jails. Detainees who are on charges as minor as a parking ticket or as serious as murder will often find themselves sharing a cell. Like Cops, this new series offers a unique insight into a world that is normally hidden from view, where the stories and characters are as compelling as they are real.
