Episode Info

In the premiere, prison inmates in New York State are admitted to the Bard Prison Initiative (BPI), one of the most rigorous college programs in America. As they begin their studies at Eastern and Taconic Correctional facilities, they discover that they will be held to the same high standards as Bard College students on the main campus in Annandale-on-Hudson. Jule, who earned his BA in German Studies in 2012, comes to terms with the crime that led to his incarceration and faces the parole board.
