Show Summary

Lockup is a prison documentary series that airs on MSNBC. It is a behind-the-scenes look at life in some of America�s most notorious prison systems. The show aims to delve inside the minds of both hardened criminals and the guards that try to keep them in line. Every day is tough for both groups, as conditions inside these prisons are despicable and almost as dangerous as the criminals the asylums hold. Even behind bars, these felons are still a threat to the guards and to each other; prisoner-on-prisoner violence and beatings are a very common occurrence. Unlike other prison shows which focus on prisoners of all types, Lockup focuses on only the most threatening criminals in America. Some famous prisons profiled by the show include San Quentin State Prison, Folsom Prison, Rikers Island Prison, and Riverbend Maximum Security Prison. The Lockup franchise also features Lockup: Raw and Lockup: Extended Stay.
