CNA Prison Doc Lands on Netflix & Discovery in Asia

Inside Maximum Security is set to debut on April 28 on Netflix across 11 territories in Southeast Asia, with a premiere on Discovery in 19 Asian territories to follow in June.

Produced by the CNA Current Affairs team, the docuseries originally premiered on CNA, meWATCH and the CNA Insider YouTube channel in January.
