Curious About Life Behind Bars? These 8 Prison Documentaries on Netflix Are a Must-Watch
Much like public scandals and celebrity feuds, it’s hard not to be fascinated by true crime programs. The popularity of shows such as Making a Murderer and Orange Is the New Black have only increased viewers’ desires to see life behind bars (though the latter program may not provide the most realistic portrait of prison life). If you want a real understanding of how the prison system works, these Netflix prison documentaries might just be for you. From a prison in the Philippines whose inmates dance for exercise to a small correctional facility for young women in Madison, IN, these documentaries provide all of the details about prison life.
