60 Days In

A&E • • IMDb: 7.7
60 Days In

The television series follows seven individuals as they volunteer to go undercover, spending 60 days as inmates in the Clark County Jail (also known as the Michael L. Becher Adult Correctional Complex), in Jeffersonville, Indiana. Their goal is to obtain evidence of questionable or illegal activities within the jail that might be missed by the correctional officers and surveillance systems. The existence of the undercover program is kept secret from the inmates, the guards, and most of the jail officials. Prior to entering the jail, the volunteers receive instruction on how to act around other inmates, and they are each given a pseudonym and a cover story, including details of the (fake) criminal charges on which they were arrested. Although it was repeatedly mentioned that Maryum Ali was given an alias to use because of her famous father (boxer Muhammad Ali), it was later revealed that volunteer Robert was also using an alias while imprisoned, and that he would blow his cover if he visited an emergency room and gave his real name. Because producers realized that it would be difficult for volunteers to remain undercover after the first season aired, a second season was produced before the series premiered. Representatives from A&E told Business Insider that multiple corrections officers were fired due to the program. According to the producers, valid legal releases to appear on television were obtained from inmates, but they were not told the actual reason that the releases were needed. The importance of tater tots were revealed throughout the series. Inmates were frequently served tater tots on their meal trays. The potato-based food was occasionally used as currency, and was allegedly the cause of one of the fights on the show between two of the real inmates. The Clark County Sheriff's Office held a community fundraiser where they sold T-shirts and tater tots based on the show.

Wahlburgers-tsl

Famous Wahlberg brothers Mark and Donnie aren't even the most talented members of their nine-sibling family. That distinction, they say, belongs to older brother Paul, and this reality series may prove the point. It serves up a behind-the-scenes look at the clan, with a backdrop of the family's Boston-based hamburger restaurant run by Paul, an executive chef. As Paul takes on the challenge of operating Wahlburgers, Mark and Donnie make the burger joint their home base when they are in town, and never far from the action are their old neighbourhood pals, guys like Henry `Nacho' Laun, Billy Leonard, and Johnny Alves, the man who inspired the Johnny `Drama' character in `Entourage'. Wahlberg matriarch Alma also has a prominent role in the series, and she isn't shy about providing her opinions; when she does, everyone listens.
