Season Two of cable’s #1 non-fiction series, “60 Days In,” continues to follow eight fake “inmates” tonight on A&E, but that number may be cut by the time the night is over. And, on “Behind Bars: Rookie Year,” Ariel takes a big step in her prison education, guarding a death-row inmate.
As fans know, “60 Days In” follows civilians who are not familiar with the world of incarceration doing time in the Clark County Jail in Indiana, to help Sheriff Jamey Noel improve his facility–and to give the rest of us some kind of idea what it might be like on the inside. Original A&E series “Behind Bars: Rookie Year” follows correctional officers during their first year on the job and, needless to say, the rookies tend to find out pretty quickly that they may not be as tough as they thought they would be when they are put to the test in the real world. Training is one thing; dealing with real convicts?
A totally different world.
