Mark your calendars and set your DVR's for THIS MONDAY on HBO. This young man, Plemons had two home armed robbery invasions and facing possible LIFE in prison. Judge showed mercy and gave him ONE SHOT at this hard core prison boot camp. If you look closely he had to duck tape his glasses together because they broke. I asked him, IF he completes his boot camp sentence, what's the first thing he's gonna do when he gets out? He said throw away his broken glasses and buy a new pair. I told him he should buy a new pair, but hold onto these broken duck taped glasses because they're now a symbol of CHANGE. He smiled huge and agreed. Funny how little things Iike this can mean so much to someone who turns their life around. Join us this Monday for my passion project and look inside a place that has real impact on young lives. Break em down. Build em up. #RockAndAHardPlace #SevenBucksProd THIS MONDAY at 10 PM on HBO .
Years ago I came to this one of kind Dade County Boot Camp Prison to talk with convicted felons about second chances at life. I knew this place was special and the world had to see positive impact it was having on these youth offenders. I called our HBO partners and said let's make a powerful documentary that will have a lasting impact on our troubled youth and their families. They said, done. I then called the creators of LOCK UP and asked them to partner up on this. They said done. What you're watching here is prison intake at 2am. Inmates are bussed in, shocked by the intense process and have their heads shaved by one another, which explains why many have fucked up haircuts. It's brutal and just the beginning. Mark your calendars and JOIN US THIS MONDAY at 10 PM on HBO. Break em down. Build em up. #RockAndAHardPlace #SevenBucksProd #44Blue #HBODocumentaryFilms
