Shot concurrently, the two seasons will follow separate groups of participants. Season three will follow nine participants as they go undercover in the jail in order to gain a deeper understanding of the criminal justice system. Among those infiltrating the jail are 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, and a Marine with law enforcement aspirations.
Season three is scheduled to premiere Thursday, March 2 at 9 p.m. ET.
