"First Week In" (TV show) on Discovery Channel is a reality docu-series in which friends, family and freedom are sacrificed. From drug charges to cases of domestic violence to kidnapping, "First Week in" offers a candid, behind-the-scenes look into the lives of profiled inmates and the moments leading up to their incarceration. With cameras following their every move, viewers will witness how the inmates, who have been arrested in cities around the country, cope with their environments, desperately contemplate ways to leave and post bail, and, at times, vow to change their lives for the better. 

In a unique twist, the show focuses on those who have been arrested for the very first time — from their initial intake to their interaction and confrontations with violent offenders to their desperate attempts to make a phone call, no aspect is off limits.

For some, the path to freedom seems inevitable. For others, the future is bleak.

"First Week in" is produced by 44 Blue Productions. Rasha Drachkovitch is executive producer for 44 Blue Productions, and Cameo Wallace is executive producer for Discovery Channel.
