Default Locked Up Abroad: Looking for Americans imprisoned abroad on drugs charges

I hope you don't mind me posting in the forum. I work with the team who make the National Geographic TV drama-documentary Locked Up Abroad. We are currently looking for American contributors for our new series. We're reaching out to any American citizens who were imprisoned abroad on drugs charges, who have now been released and feel it could be the right time to share their stories.

Our series is well known for telling one person’s story in their own words, with no commentary or voiceover, so it’s purely their experience and their memories of what they went through. Our focus is on telling the human story, explaining what drew the person towards the events that resulted in their imprisonment, as well as the positive, upwards trajectory when they were released.

After making 12 seasons we appreciate how delicate sharing such traumatic experiences can be and we would never pressure anyone to take part, but if you're interested and would like to know more please drop me a private message.

Advisory for PTO Members Regarding Requests from Journalists & Members of the Media, and Students/Researchers:

PTO welcomes journalists and/or members of the media to learn and educate themselves about prisons, prisoners, and their loved ones, as well as students and researchers doing research on these subjects.

We will, occasionally, allow the media or students/researchers to request information and personal stories from our members. However, PTO does not endorse any journalist, member of the media, story/report, media outlet, student/researcher, or educational/research institution.

If you decide to communicate with a media representative or a researcher, then you assume all of the risks involved. PTO is in no way liable for the outcome of the story/report/paper. Communication with members of the media and students/researchers is completely voluntarily and PTO holds no responsibility for the consequences of that communication.

PTO does not screen or authenticate any person(s) claiming to be from the media or from an educational/research institution, nor does PTO authenticate their motivations for obtaining the information.

As always, the disclosure of personal information (either yours or someone that is incarcerated) may have some serious repercussions. PTO has no way of predicting how the media or any researcher will present your story or that of your loved one. Any relationship with the media or any researchers is to be entered into at your own risk.

If you receive an unsolicited email or private message from a person claiming to be from the media or researching information for an educational or research institution, report it to the PTO Administration immediately
