DESCRIPTION:
(from OWN's press release, August 2017) OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network will premiere the eight-episode docu-series, "Released," which features intimate, first-person narratives of formerly incarcerated men and women as they walk out of the prison doors for the first time to restart their lives. The series premieres on Saturday, September 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT after an all new episode of "Iyanla: Fix My Life" at 9 p.m. ET/PT. "This series depicts OWN's intention of telling personal and very real stories that affect our everyday lives," said executive producer and EVP of programming for OWN, Jon Sinclair. "The heartfelt narratives will expose the effects of mass incarceration not only on the individuals, but also the impact on the entire family unit and the unique challenges re-entering society can bring." Through a diary-like lens, "Released" presents autobiographical portraits of formerly incarcerated individuals as they walk out of the prison doors for the first time and during their first 90 days out of prison as each attempt to reconnect with their loved ones, establish their independence and begin the long, hard work of resurrecting their abandoned lives.
