MSNBC aired a new documentary, part of “Lockup” series, called “Wake Up Call”: Orange County, last night, which featured life inside the Orange County Jail. Here is how they described the program in their press release:
California conjures images of well-manicured neighborhoods and a surfer culture that gave birth to the Beach Boys, and has existed ever since. But blending seamlessly into the heart of one of its busiest neighborhoods is a reminder of the county’s other side. Inside Orange County Jail, confinement takes a dark turn for a light-hearted teenager, but provides a new beginning for an old bank robber. And a mother who has put drugs before her son gets another chance.
You can watch this program, if you missed it, on Dec. 31, at 9 pm, on MSNBC.
