"60 Days In" offers an unprecedented look at life behind bars at Indiana's Clark County Jail. Following seven innocent participants who enter the dangerous world of incarceration, they are sent to live among its general population for 60 days without officers, fellow inmates, or staff knowing their secret.
As a result of the facility’s recent corrupt history, Sheriff Jamey Noel devised this program in an effort to bring problems to light and give viewers a first-hand look as the participants adapt to unfamiliar and terrifying surroundings.
Clark County Correctional Jail houses approximately 500 prisoners, from inmates charged with drug dealing to first time offenders to capital murder. Over 12 episodes, the participants, who were hand picked by the Sheriff, are followed by hundreds of cameras planted throughout the jail exposing their journey. Each participant volunteered for a different reason, but they share the ultimate goal of leaving with a better understanding of the system.
“60 Days In” is a warts-and-all view of what life is like behind bars, through the eyes of people who have never been charged with a crime or done time.
