MSNBC’s Lockup Extended Stay filmed at the Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center (3841 Leeds Ave.) about 10 months ago, and Sat. Nov. 22 at 10 p.m. viewers can see what happens in the Charleston jail. 

The Lockup series examines what life is like in prisons in both America and other countries — for both the inmates and workers. Life After Lockup follows recently released inmates and tracks their integration back into society. 

In the Charleston episode, both men and women are featured. There’s also a discussion on prison’s version of phone sex, lots of fights, and guards with shotguns.
