Hard TimeSeason 2

“Hard Time” is an exclusive, ground-breaking factual series that goes behind the scenes of U. S. maximum-security prisons and immerses viewers into the brutal reality of life inside. Prisoners, guards, wardens, families – these are stories of despair and hope, truth and consequence. In Season I we follow new inmates and young prison-officer cadets. Season II takes us on a yearlong journey behind bars in an Ohio prison where respect is hard-won, violence is a constant threat and redemption an elusive quest. “It’s World War III, we’re fighting it every day”, says a world-weary prison guard in Season III, which takes us to two notorious Georgia State Prisons, one of which is for women only. By focusing on a few inmates and guards in each episode, the series weaves a powerful and often heart-breaking emotional tapestry of lost souls.
