Maryum Ali, the eldest daughter of legendary boxer Muhammed Ali, goes undercover as an inmate in an Indiana jail for a new reality television series. 60 Days In follows seven people’s experiences as they pose as inmates in the Clark County Jail, seeking to expose possible corruption.
Ali is a social worker, and she said the experience may teach her something about the people she works with who are dealing with incarcerated family members. Ali says the scariest part of her experience was the booking process.
County Sheriff, Jamey Noel, and one of his deputies were the only ones who know the seven participants were undercover inmates. Noel had the idea of having “undercover inmates” in his jail after Clark County Jail had been busted for corruption. The seven undercover inmates didn’t even know of one another. There were over 300 cameras installed in the jail, as well as a small production staff who also filmed throughout the 60 days.
The show premieres Thursday, March 10th, at 9pm EST on A&E. You can read more about the show here, and click here to watch Ali speak on her scariest moment throughout the experience
