A&E NETWORK LOCKS DOWN ATLANTA’S FULTON COUNTY JAIL FOR TWO ADDITIONAL SEASONS OF HIT ORIGINAL NONFICTION SERIES ’60 DAYS IN’

GROUND-BREAKING SERIES FOLLOWS UNDERCOVER PARTICIPANTS AS THEY ENTER ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS FACILITIES IN THE COUNTRY

“60 DAYS IN: ATLANTA” PREMIERES THURSDAY, MARCH 2 AT 9PM ET/PT

New York, NY – January 30 2017 – A&E Network’s hit series “60 Days In” enters Atlanta’s Fulton County Jail for two new explosive seasons at one of the most dangerous facilities in the country. With five times the number of inmates as previous seasons, rampant drug problems, a powerful gang population and the constant threat of violence, innocent participants plunge deeper into this dangerous world of incarceration. The two groups of participants were shot in back-to back phases and will air over two seasons. The highly-anticipated third season will consist of nine undercover participants who enter the dangerous program to gain a deeper understanding of the criminal justice system. Produced by Lucky 8 TV, “60 Days In: Atlanta” premieres Thursday, March 2 at 9PM ET/PT on A&E.

The Fulton County Jail, led by Chief Jailer Colonel Mark C. Adger, is plagued with rival gangs, drugs, and corruption. After learning about the tremendous success of the previous undercover programs in Clark County, Indiana, Colonel Adger, decided to use innocent civilians to help him expose the root of these issues, while providing an unbiased perspective of life inside his facility.

The participants who infiltrate the jail this season include a special education teacher who works with at risk youth, a man who believes that the system has failed African Americans and wants to help fight discrimination, a former corrections officer who wants to see what it is like when the roles are reversed, a woman who met her husband while he was incarcerated and hopes to understand his institutionalized behavior, a Marine with law enforcement aspirations and others.

Unlike previous seasons, male and female participants will be separated in two different facilities; men will be housed in the main campus where they share a cell with one other inmate, while females will be in cell-bunk form with seven other inmates. The participants are on lockdown with their cell mates for over 15 hours a day and face immense pressure to fit in or risk being the target of threats, violence or their having covers blown.

“60 Days In: Atlanta” is produced by Lucky 8 TV for A&E Network. Executive producers for Lucky 8 TV are Gregory Henry, Kimberly Woodard, Jeff Grogan, Isaac Holub and Kelly McClurkin. Executive producers for A&E Network are Elaine Frontain Bryant, Shelly Tatro, and Brad Holcman.
