about the documentary

County Jail takes you deep inside some of the toughest jails in America.  In this series, we take you to jails in Miami, Las Vegas, and Oakland, where inmates are facing life, or, sometimes, death.  It’s a world where guilt and innocence hang in the balance – breeding tension, desperation, and the never-ending threat of violence.
