March 9, 2017 – Burbank, CA — Bexel has supplied all audio/video equipment for the third season of the innovative A&E docuseries “60 Days In,” which premiered March 2. Produced by Lucky 8 TV, the third season is set inside Fulton County Jail in Atlanta.
The latest installment of “60 Days In” follows Bexel’s work on the first two seasons, for which Bexel worked with Lucky 8 and Technical Supervisor Alex Sierra Jr. to develop a complex security camera system and control room for Clark County Jail in Jeffersonville, Indiana.
“Bexel has a well-deserved reputation for technical expertise,” said Lucky 8 TV Co-president Greg Henry. “We have a long history of working with them, and the equipment they’ve provided for the third season of ‘60 Days In’ once again seamlessly supports the necessary technical infrastructure for filming inside a working prison.”
“60 Days In” chronicles an unprecedented program in which ordinary law-abiding citizens voluntarily enter one of the nation’s most dangerous corrections facilities as undercover “inmates” in an attempt to expose issues that have been plaguing the facility and gain a deeper understanding of the criminal justice system. Neither the actual inmates nor the guards are aware of the participants’ undercover status. For the third season of “60 Days In,” Lucky 8 and A&E partnered with Colonel Mark C. Adger, chief jailer of Fulton County Jail, who was seeking to gain intelligence for improving conditions in his facility.
“‘60 Days In’ is one of the most unique TV series in recent memory,” said Gordon Wason, strategic account manager, Bexel. “We were proud of our contribution to the first two seasons, and it’s a real honor to be able to work with Lucky 8 TV on this groundbreaking show.”
