"Released" (TV show) is a reality series on OWN that features intimate, first-person narratives of formerly incarcerated men and women as they walk out of the prison doors for the first time to restart their lives.

The United States has approximately 2.5 million people in prisons across the country — more than any other country in the world. The first ninety days of being released are crucial for those who have been incarcerated — as they often face many challenges and few resources — and nearly 40% of released convicted felons re-offend within the first six months (Bureau of Justice Statistics). Driven by intimate, first-person narratives and through a diary-like lens, this series presents autobiographical portraits of formerly incarcerated men and women as they walk out of the prison doors for the first time and attempt to reconnect with their loved ones, establish their independence and begin the long, hard work of resurrecting their abandoned lives.

"Released" is executive produced by Oprah Winfrey and produced by Lucky 8 TV ("60 Days In") with executive producers Greg Henry, Kim Woodard, Jarrett Lambo and Keayr Braxton, alongside author and advocate Shaka Shangor as consulting producer.
