Behind Bars: The World’s Toughest Prisons has been developed by Munich-based producer Maximus Film and Berlin-based distributor Quintus Media.

Discovery will air the six-episode series in Scandinavia and Benelux, while A+E Networks has picked up rights for the UK and Poland, with N-TV taking rights for German-speaking Europe.
