TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Reality

The Jail: 60 Days In 5

The new season is located deep in Arizona's southwestern desert. Pinal County Detention Center is the 3rd deadliest jail in America, where five inmates have died since 2015 and a Detention Officer was brutally stabbed 21 times by inmates.

Now there's a new sheriff in town. Sheriff Mark Lamb is a cowboy-hat wearing, God-fearing Mormon, with 10 years of law enforcement under his belt. He is determined to reform this jail and believes that implementing this program will get him the results he is looking for.

In order to do so, Sheriff Lamb recruits a savvy team of men and women to help him investigate the inmate population and the jail system itself.

From a former-gangmember-turned-Chaplain who served more than 15 years in prison, to a 60 Days In superfan, the Sheriff is leaving no stone unturned and assigning each participant one of three specific missions.

While inside the participants will focus their intel on drugs, gangs and jail operations - and they'll have 60 days to do it.
