Back in April, MSNBC spent five weeks filming "Young Kids, Hard Time."
It's an in-depth look at the Youth Incarcerated as Adults (YIA) at the Wabash Valley Correctional Facility. The unit, housing 50 boys, focuses on education during time-served.
Some members of Congress have already requested a private screening of the documentary because of the honest look inside.
"It's individual stories about young people, what they did, how they got here, what they plan to do about it. And many of the stories are very positive and yet tragic at the same time. It's a series that will generate a lot of interest," said Rich Larsen, Public Information Officer for the Wabash Valley Correctional Facility.
The hour-long part one of "Young Kids, Hard Time" premieres Sunday, November 20 at 10 p.m. on MSNBC.
Another documentary, "Locked Up: Extended Stay Wabash Valley" begins next Saturday, November 26 at 10 p.m. This series will continue for five consecutive Saturdays, finishing up on December 31.
