I've been working a good part of the summer on a program that is scheduled to air this Thursday on ABC: PrimeTime Live at 10pm. We visited the Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections and watched as they tried to reform incorrigible youth.
Please check it out and let me know what you think. This Thursday at 10pm on ABC. Spread the word.

CHRIS CUOMO TAKES AN UNPRECEDENTED JOURNEY INSIDE A JUVENILE CORRECTIONS CENTER AND MEETS SOME TROUBLED TEENS WHO HAVE ONE LAST CHANCE TO CHANGE THEIR WAYS
“Primetime” Airs Thursday, August 4 at 10pm E.T.
They start out like most children – bright, loving, eager to please -- until something goes terribly wrong. Across the country, some 104,000 troubled teens are locked up in juvenile correction facilities. In an hour-long “Primetime” report, Co-Anchor Chris Cuomo goes inside two of these facilities in Phoenix, AZ, and meets a group of kids at a critical turning point – they have one last shot to either change their ways or face the prospect of doing time in an adult prison. “Primetime” was granted unprecedented access to Arizona’s system for juveniles and spent nearly six months following these teens as they wound their way in and out of the system. Along the way, they share their shame, their secrets and their dreams. They show their pride and promise. And in the end, they reveal that behind the behind the tough talk and bravado, they are still just kids. “PRIMETIME" airs THURSDAY, AUGUST 4 (10:00-11:00pm ET) on the ABC Television Network.
