Prison Families

Format: 10 x 23
Commissioner(s):  TV3
Available in HD

How does a family survive with one of their own behind bars? Behind every headline is an incredible true story and a family serving a sentence of their own.

Prison Families is a ground-breaking observational series following ten families as they grapple with the challenges of living with a loved one behind bars. From suburban housewives to notorious families of crime, each episode documents one family’s unique story of crime, justice, and redemption. Striking dramatisations bring to life the moments their lives changed forever.

We follow the fortunes of these families during a pivotal moment in their lives; from the anticipation of a parole hearing to a new start in a new town. These are everyday families thrown into an extraordinary world where only the toughest survive.
