Behind Bars: Rookie Year
With high attrition and a constant shortage of men and women up to the task, this series will follow a class of new correction officers in the California prison system as they begin their 60-day probation period. Statistically, only 1 in 4 will make it past these first 60 days. While we'll see character development over the course of a season, each episode will be self-contained and highlight a new task that they're tackling for the first time. These tasks may include executing a cell search of suspected gang members, breaking up a fight between rival drug dealers who are out for blood, or working their first solo shift to cover a "pod" of inmates where they will be outnumbered 75 to 1. They will be keeping an eye on some of the country's most violent offenders as they adjust to life behind bars.
