10 Prison Documentaries That Get Way More Real Than OITNB Ever Does
Much like traffic accidents and celebrity Twitter wars, 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, then these 10 prison documentaries might just be for you. From a mega prison in Miami with 6,000 inmates to a small correctional facility for young women in Madison, IN, these documentaries provide all of the details of prison life that OITNB forgot to mention.
