Morgan Spurlock checked into the Henrico County Jail in February and left with some shattered stereotypes.
An agreement was signed, and Spurlock was processed at Henrico's Jail West on Feb. 8, after he was "sentenced" to 30 days in jail for a phony contempt-of-court charge. The show's production company paid for the cost of the incarceration.
"He lived in a cell like everybody else," Wade said. "We treated him just like an inmate."
Well, not exactly. He got to leave after 24 days.
Still, I am very glad that 30 Days is coming back to TV. The first episode -- about what it's like to live on minimum wage -- was one of the best things I've ever watched. Period. So, even though this jail thing seems like a stunt, I'll be watching.
