DESCRIPTION:
(from A&E's press release, August 2016) Cable's #1 new non-fiction series "60 Days In," following innocent civilians posing as inmates, returns for season two with a two hour premiere event on Thursday, August 18 at 9PM and 10PM ET/PT on A&E. The next week, A&E's original docuseries "Behind Bars: Rookie Year," following correctional officers during their first year on the job, premieres its second season on Thursday, August 25 at 10PM ET/PT. Both series are produced by Lucky 8 TV. "Behind Bars: Rookie Year" zeros in on the New Mexico Corrections Department, one of the most notoriously dangerous prison systems in the country, where rookie correctional officers (COs) are just beginning their first year on the job. They join a prison system that holds over 7,000 inmates but is managed by less than 1,000 correction officers. Intensifying the situation, one of the most influential prison gangs, Syndicato de Nuevo Mexico (SNM), has declared war on law enforcement. Foot soldiers on the front lines against SNM and other ruthless gangs, these rookies discover drug lines into the facility, intercept communications from the outside and confront hit plans on the Secretary of Corrections Gregg Marcantel and an attack on rookie officer Aaron Purto. The stakes for these rookies are higher than ever and any mistake could be deadly. In the season 2 premiere the series expands its territory to Southern New Mexico Correctional Facility, a prison that has seen two murders in the last 18 months among its inmates, 85% of whom are involved in gangs within the compound. There, Lilly Rodriguez has wanted to be in law enforcement ever since she was a kid but is consistently underestimated for her size; she stands at five feet tall, 102 pounds and is required to wear a child-sized stab vest. At the Western New Mexico facility, CO Christian Sandoval recently gave up a rodeo scholarship for a steadier paycheck but questions his decision when he is tasked with overseeing level 3 inmates; the majority of whom have life sentences and nothing to lose. And at the Penitentiary of New Mexico featured in season 1, COs Andrew Cordova, Cohen Mangin and the seemingly meek Ariel Montoya become more confident in their positions.
