SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Salt Lake County jail is getting a few minutes of fame with an appearance in the Spike TV reality show "Jail."
Sheriff's officials say the jail will debut in an episode Oct. 25, and will be featured in at least the following five episodes.
Jail officials say they hosted producers and a film crew for twelve weeks while the show taped the inner workings of the jail, focusing on the processing division.
The Spike TV channel describes "Jail" as a reality show following prison inmates from their initial bookings through their first moments behind bars.
Show officials say it's shot on location at cities across the country and captures the harsh and sometimes humorous reality of life in a jail.
