The Marshall Project and VICE News to Launch Inside Story Show

Developed by formerly incarcerated people, the video series brings news, interviews and profiles into U.S. prisons and jails.

Inside Story is a first-of-its-kind new video series created to engage with and bring information to one of America’s largest news deserts: its prisons and jails. Developed by formerly incarcerated people, Inside Story brings critical accountability and investigative journalism on the criminal justice system to incarcerated people — and those on the outside, too.

Hosted and co-created by The Marshall Project’s Lawrence Bartley, the show is a collaboration with the Emmy-winning VICE News team. Across eight episodes, Inside Story will feature stories that build on The Marshall Project’s investigations, plus animated first-person essays and more.

Expect to hear from prominent changemakers in policy, entertainment and social justice, including formerly incarcerated people. The season will feature lawyer Bryan Stevenson, actors La La Anthony and Gbenga Akinnagbe, comedians Luenell and Ali Siddiq, writer Piper Kerman, TV chef Fernando Ruiz and many others.

Each episode will be available online at noon EST every Thursday, beginning Feb. 2. Watch them here on The Marshall Project’s website or on VICE News’ YouTube or on the VICE News FAST channel.
