A spokesperson told Deadline: "Filming had begun on the series, but due to unforeseen production challenges, we made the practical decision to halt filming and will not be progressing further."



The series was due to follow documentary maker, actor and author Ross Kemp as he goes behind bars in some of the world’s most high-security, high-risk prisons housing gang leaders, serial killers, violent criminals, drug lords and mass murderers to discover first-hand what it’s like to live life inside amongst society’s most dangerous.


From the notorious prisons of Latin America to the uncompromising penitentiaries of South-East Asia, Ross was due to be on the frontline of law enforcement’s fight against gangs, ruthless killers and organised crime.



Channel 5 is available on Sky channel 105.
