Premise

A grim and graphically raw drama about life (and often death) in an experimental prison ward called Emerald City at the Oswald State Correctional Facility (nicknamed Oz). It was alternately praised and criticized for its profane language and extreme violence, but creator Tom Fontana's uncompromising study of men and women behind bars---staffers as well as prisoners---is compellingly written and performed.
