VIDEO: First Look - New We tv Docu-Series LOVE AFTER LOCKUP, Premiering 1/12
People find the love of their life in many ways: set-ups, matchmakers, swiping right, and sometimes... through letters with incarcerated convicts! WE tv's all-new docuseries, "LOVE AFTER LOCKUP" premiering Friday, January 12 at 10PM ET/PT, follows six couples who share the emotional journey of being united for the first time after years of supervised visits, recorded phone calls, and handwritten letters, as they transition from love behind bars to the marriage altar.
From the producers of the hit show 90 Day Fiancé, this new series will introduce the couples as they prepare for the big release day - and an even bigger wedding day. As most of these couples have never had UNSUPERVISED contact with one another, we will watch as they experience several "firsts" including dates, meeting THE FAMILY and other nerve-wracking, intimate moments.
The newly free ex-cons are lucky enough to walk into the open arms of their loved one, but will also deal with the difficulties of reentry; including temptations in the outside world, rules and regulations due to parole, difficulties of job hunting with a rap sheet, and of course judgement from family and friends. Each is a tale of love and redemption, full of surprises and shocking moments, begging the question "Is love enough to create a bright future when one partner has a checkered past?"
