An extraordinary Australian television first is coming to Channel 9 in 2022.
Australia Behind Bars, presented by Melissa Doyle, offers unprecedented access beyond the high walls and barbed wires of three maximum security prisons.
This powerhouse eight-part series documents the harsh realities of daily life behind bars for inmates and corrections officers alike. The stories are both confronting and compelling, detailing the heartbreak, hell – and hopes – of an existence in prison.
Australia Behind Bars will give audiences a dramatic, firsthand look at a part of society they rarely see, and the stories behind the people who make up the prison system.
Australian Behind Bars is produced by ITV Studios Australia for the 9Network.
