DESCRIPTION: (from A&E's press release, June 2015) A&E Network's "Beyond Scared Straight," the Emmy-nominated series that profiles unique crime prevention programs aimed at deterring troubled teens from jail, premieres its ninth and final 11-episode season on Thursday, June 25 at 9PM ET/PT, immediately followed by the series premiere of the new original documentary series "American Takedown," from executive producer Morgan Spurlock, at 10PM ET/PT. Inspired by "Scared Straight!," the Academy Award and multiple Emmy-winning documentary film by Arnold Shapiro, "Beyond Scared Straight" follows teens who pride themselves on bad behavior ranging from theft, drugs, promiscuity, gang affiliation, violence and arson. These defiant teens are forced to spend a day (and sometimes a night) in jail, interacting with convicted felons who give them first-hand experience of life behind bars with the hope that they see where the path of destruction they are headed down could lead them. Since the series' inception in 2009, 'Beyond Scared Straight' has profiled 331 teens in crime prevention programs in 29 prisons and jails across the county.
