Beyond Scared Straight

Series Summary
Based on the multiple award-winning documentary "Scared Straight!" from executive producer Arnold Shapiro, "Beyond Scared Straight," much like the original, profiles unique juvenile crime prevention programs in prisons across the U.S. Each hourlong episode follows a handful of at-risk teenagers as they attend a program, which includes an intensive one-day session in a prison. A month later, the teens are asked what, if any, lasting impressions the program had on them. Some change their ways following the experience while others continue down the same path they were on before.
