The new A&E docuseries Inmate to Roommate will follow recently released inmates as they re-enter society by moving in with people they barely know.

The trailer for the series shows a group of ex-cons adjusting to their new living arrangements. After viewing a seemingly endless list of house rules, one former inmate asks, “What the hell did I get myself into here?”

Later in the trailer a woman yells, “You ain’t gotta go home, but you gotta leave here!”

Here’s the official description of the show: “Both the former inmates and their respective roommates will enter this new living arrangement with their own baggage. The opportunities and the challenges are complex as they each face scrutiny from friends and family questioning their motives. Will this new situation allow the formerly incarcerated to successfully re-enter society or will it be the worst decision both parties have ever made?”

The series is produced by Sharp Entertainment, a part of Sony Pictures Television, for A&E. Executive producers for Sharp Entertainment include Matt Sharp, Dan Adler and Laura Korkoian with Joseph Ruzer as co-executive producer. Elaine Frontain Bryant, Shelly Tatro and Jonathan Partridge serve as executive producers for A&E.

Inmate to Roommate premieres Thursday, Aug. 18 at 10pm ET/PT on A&E, right after the new season of 60 Days In debuts at 9pm ET/PT.

    1. The real question is: what KIND of ex-cons will be on the show? I doubt it would be some serial killer or murders, right? If so, your judgement isn’t welcomed.. Sometimes people make HORRILE mistakes and they obviously paid for it in jail. Now, they want to move on with a better life. What if this was one of your family members???? Food for your thoughts!
