60 Days In - your favourite new reality TV show.

Four shows you can't miss on TV this week

60 Days In, S1

WEDNESDAY, JULY 20

9.30pm on 613 Crime

DO YOU think you have what it takes to survive in prison?

Could you put yourself into the shoes - and the prison bunk - of a convict? And could you convince the other prisoners you were the real deal, rather than an innocent member of the public taking part in a bold experiment?

That's the premise behind unprecedented docuseries 60 Days In. Seven civilians volunteered to spend two months behind bars in the Clark County Jail in Jefferson, Indiana.

Hidden around-the-clock cameras filmed them as they lived in general population without inmates, officers or the prison staff knowing their secret identities.

Watch first-hand as they attempt to adapt to their new, terrifying surroundings.

Binge on this addictive series and the story so far on Anytime before the latest episode tonight!

 

The Kettering Incident

MONDAY, July 25

When Anna returns 15 years later the town is struggling to survive.

The community is being torn apart by clashes between environmentalists and loggers.

Anna's reappearance causes a stir. As she continues to unfold theories of what happened, the rumours persist that she was responsible or it was an alien abduction.

Then another girl disappears. Anna is drawn to discover what really happened, uncovering secrets buried deep in her mind and the heart of Kettering and its people.

The Recruit, S2

Out there, playing somewhere in Australia right now, is a weekend warrior the AFL recruiters have either never seen or missed; a man dreaming of an AFL career.

He is 'The Recruit' and he will win arguably the biggest prize ever given away on a TV show - a guaranteed place on an AFL list.

The Recruit is a 10-part reality series that follows a group of recruits who live and play together as a team, while at the same time competing against each other, in order to win this life-changing prize.

Season two returns with one of the all-time masters of AFL, the legendary Mick Malthouse, leading the search for Australia's next sporting hero.
