“InCARcerated”–A Prison Reality TV Show?


A Los Angeles TV production company is discussing a potential reality television show at Nevada’s Southern Desert Correctional Center, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The proposed weekly program, “inCARcerated,” would focus on the inmates who work in a prison industries program that restores and rebuilds classic cars for private citizens. The tagline for a promotional video says: “inCARcerated. In this garage, they have nothing but time.”

Rebel Entertainment Partners is trying to sell the show. Court TV has asked for a budget for the program. A Nevada official said the program, if it airs, would give prison industry programs publicity that could result in more work opportunities for inmates.
