Jail (stylized as JAIL) is a reality television series that follows suspected criminals from booking through incarceration. The series was created and produced by John Langley and his son, Morgan Langley, through their Langley television and film Productions company who also produce Cops. It first appeared on MyNetworkTV's 2007 Fall schedule. It was later syndicated on TruTV, under the name Inside American Jail, and Spike.[1]

The booking of former NFL Hall of Famer O.J. Simpson into the Clark County, Nevada Detention Center was featured in the show's February 11, 2008 episode.[2]

The theme song, "Get Me Out", is performed by rapper Lil' Droppa, who announced plans to promote the song with a Video on YouTube.

Spike TV[edit]

In 2014, Spike revived the series as Jail: Las Vegas; shifting focus to jails in the eponymous city. The network ordered a 22-episode season which premiered on January 10, 2015.[3][4]

In January 2016, it was announced on the show's Facebook page that Spike had renewed Jail for a fifth season.[5] In April, the season's title was announced as Jail: Big Texas; focusing on jails in the state of Texas. The fifth season premiered on Saturday, July 9, 2016.[6][7][8]
