Locked up abroad
Don't know if anyone watches this show on here, but there was one on Saturday about 2 journalists getting caught by the MD in Iraq. It was pretty crazy. If you get the chance to see it, check it out.

It's "Banged Up Abroad" unless it's a new series. I've watched most episodes. Pretty crazy situations some people have put themselves in for not a lot of money.

I've heard of locked up, not the other.... sounds like late night cinemax

No its locked up. Most of the time its about people trying to run drugs on airplanes, but the episode I was talking about was nuts. Two journalists go behind enemy lines in a northern town(forgot the name) got snatched right away, almost shot, then when the guy finally convinces them they are in fact journalists and not spies, it is too late to leave and the Americans start attacking(Talk about wrong side of the fight!) They get out and transfered the next day to different groups, all who want to kill them. Like I said, you have to see it.

I'll have to watch out for that one.

Banged Up Abroad is all about people that have tried to smuggle drugs in and out of different countries and get caught and going to prison in places like Venezuela where prisoners have guns, grenades, and macheties. Same kind of show just with Drugs instead of guns I guess. I assume it's on National Geographic Channel?

Same show, it's just re-badged 'Locked Up' for the American market.
