THE SPOTLIGHT

INTRODUCING: “LOVE DURING LOCKUP”

Posted by WE tv Editors | October 1, 2021

Introducing: “Love DURING Lockup”

Four years after the launch of one of the most successful franchises in WE tv history, “Love After Lockup” and “Life After Lockup,” a captivating new series is coming to WE tv in January of 2022. “Love During Lockup” documents the fascinating drama that unfolds when ordinary people first decide to pursue relationships with prison inmates, and an early dating period filled with a very specific set of unique challenges and obstacles. From scouring photos online, admirers who are completely obsessed with the prisoner pursuit, to failed paramours with a first-time prison pen pal, each has a specific reason for wanting love with an inmate.

“Love During Lockup” follows even more riveting firsts through the early stages of love, with plenty of romance, suspicion, and investigation, all long before a scheduled prison release. Every non-con has a unique strategy for finding love behind bars – whether they only seek drug offenders who are believed to be nonviolent, or a prison bae pushing a wrongful conviction. Other lonely civilians are simply on the hunt for their very own ‘hot felon,’ with the model mugshot to prove it. Voracious viewers of the franchise are in for more drama, more mystery, scams, catfishing, and more crazy reveals than ever before.

“The ‘Love After Lockup’ and ‘Life After Lockup’ franchise has been a tremendous success for WE tv and transformed our Friday night as viewers have taken a personal stake in our couples, following their stories every week,” said Lauren Gellert, executive vice president of development and original programming for WE tv. “We’ve seen what happens once our non-cons and cons unite after prison release and as they embark on their relationship in ‘Love,’ and we’ve probed the rare successful pairing that endures in ‘Life,” but now with this third series we will all be able to watch these relationships begin, and this early dating period set against the backdrop of the very specific challenges and obstacles that prison presents.”

WE can’t wait for Love During Lockup to premiere in January of 2022!

About Eazy-E

Born Eric Lynn Wright in Compton California and known as the Godfather of Gangsta Rap, Eazy-E is responsible for igniting a revolution in the world of popular music. His company, Ruthless Records, and his iconic group NWA, gave the world a whole new kind of hip hop and paved the way for much of what the genre is today. From the beginning, Eazy-E and his “gang” from the “CPT” invited controversy and reveled at pushing every boundary. From explicit, often violent, lyrics that denied them radio play to songs like “Straight Outta Compton” and “Fuck the Police” which drew the ire of the FBI and filled their live shows with a palpable tension. NWA was dubbed “The World’s Most Dangerous Group” for a reason.

Eazy-E built the most successful independent music startup of its time. But as the owner and most visible figure on the label, many became jealous of his success and he quickly attracted high profile enemies in the industry. Through the years, Eazy’s list of enemies grew to include The FBI, white supremacists, right wing terror groups and even rival distributers plotting secret takeovers have been alleged. And Eazy himself continued to invite controversy and criticism. He even took heat from his own community when he stood up for one of the police officers charged in the Rodney King beating. His controversial life have much to do with the questions surrounding his death. There were many with something to gain. If foul play was at all a factor, Eazy-E would make a logical candidate.
