Middlebury Five-0: Mark Potanas

In this special, on-location edition of the show I interview the

wife) on an eye-opening, preconception-shattering tour of this magnificent
facility - showing us the many services and programs offered in the prison,
and introducing us to some of the staff and many of the inmates. The

enlightening and inspiring for me.
