Prisonpals.tv is the brainchild of Eric Brof, a psychologist who believes that interactions with the general public can rehabilitate even the hardest criminal. Unfortunately Eric was wrong, and a film crew was there to record the hostile environment, bureaucratic power struggles, and a maximum-security talent show. With Prisonpals, we wanted to make a comedy about online behaviour and set it in a clearly defined world where actions have consequences. In the age of cyberbullies, are prisoners really the worst people you could come into contact with online?
