Inmates With Talent does not glamorize prison in any manner.
One of the inmates in a correctional facility be the next Tim Allen or Curtis James “50 Cent” Jackson?
Famous comedian and actor, Tim Allen didn’t let the stigma of being an ex-con keep him down. In a matter of a few years, he actually went from a prison cell in Sandstone, Minnesota to the #1 television show in America, Home Improvement.
In 1994, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson was arrested for helping to sell cocaine to an undercover police officer. He was arrested again weeks later. Ultimately, he was sentenced to three to nine years in prison, but managed to serve six months in a boot camp where he earned his GED. Jackson adopted the nickname “50 Cent” as a metaphor for “change.”
Tim Allen and 50 Cent are inspirations and living proof of directing energies in a positive way. And there are many more examples.
Inmates With Talent is about entertainment and change.
Could a career in comedy, music or acting (including spoken word poetry) help rehabilitate some offenders? Can entertainment be used to ease tensions in the prison system? We focus on offenders who appear sincere about their recovery. Offenders who are committed to “change.”
Additionally, we are mindful of the fact that inmates are incarcerated to pay a debt to society. And considering that, Inmates With Talent does not glamorize prison in any manner. We produced a product that reflects a progressive approach toward rehabilitating prison populations. Entertainment is our ‘therapeutic solution’.Content coming soon…
