I watched a few episodes of Banged Up Abroad a.k.a Locked Up Abroad
It does dramatizations of real stories of westerners getting arrested and going to foreign prisons, but they hyper focused on westerners getting caught smuggling drugs. Every episode feels the same. It looks pretty good, but they often can’t shoot in the locations they are portraying, and often can’t cast actors from the countries the people are supposed to be from. The writers also love to throw in little portents for a superstitious audience. The show heavily panders to low-brow tastes and sensibilities.
A show about people getting caught doing crimes in exotic locations is a great premise, but this show really squanders that.
