Starting Sunday March 1st, from 9-11pm, MSNBC will be broadcasting one of the most successful and beloved non-fiction series ever, Locked Up Abroad.
The show captures harrowing stories with a common nightmare scenario: what can happen if you are arrested and thrown into prison in a foreign country? Viewers of MSNBC’s Lockup are well-educated on the dangers inherent in the U.S. prison system, but for Americans who find themselves in deep trouble in another country, the situation can be all the more traumatic. To launch the series, this month MSNBC will be running ten of the best Locked Up Abroad episodes, from “The Real Midnight Express” (airing this week on Sunday at 10 pm) to "High Heels and Heroin" (Sunday, March 8th at 10 pm) to "Trouble in the Jungle" (Sunday, March 29th at 9 pm). Using dramatic re-enactments and interviews with the Americans who were arrested, each episode tells their tales in their own words in a riveting fashion that will keep viewers coming back for new installments every Sunday in March. The shows will re-air on Friday nights at 12 and 1 am. Enjoy.
