Lockup is a reality series that pulls back the curtain on life in American prisons. Whereas the general public perspective of prison life might entail thoughts of prison gangs, murders, psychopaths, and an all around dangerous environment, Lockup aims to present the inmates of these prisons as people who have made big mistakes in their lives as they try to adapt to their new way of life behind bars as well as contemplate where they began to go wrong, the inmates often receiving personal “inmate cams” that allow them to record their thoughts in their cells. Lockup: State Prisons brings the audience into state penitentiaries.
