A Decade Behind Bars: Return to 'The Farm'

A new documentary and follow-up to the Oscar Award-Wining 'The Farm' takes an updated look at the lives of four prisoners at the Louisiana State Penitentiary. While the faces are familiar, the environment has undergone a drastic transformation from one of the world’s most dangerous prisons to a rehabilitation center; there are five churches and a bible college, the grounds are nearly all a self-sustaining agricultural community, and the prisoners have instituted their own television station.

As a part of the project, a new social networking site was created called GabrielCity.com, for those affected by the criminal justice system including the incarcerated and formerly incarcerated, victims, and their affected family members.

The Daily Beast offers an exclusive sneak peek at the program that airs June 16 on National Geographic, featuring a prisoner in charge of running the television station behind bars.
