Discovery Communications-owned true crime network Investigation Discovery is readying the premiere of three-part docuseries Judgement Day: Prison or Parole? from Paradise Lost director Joe Berlinger.

Set to debut on Sunday (May 22) at 8 p.m. EST/PST, the hour-long series provides unprecedented access to the state parole boards in Colorado and Wyoming to examine whether convicted inmates are fit for reintegration into society or should remain incarcerated.

The three-part series will also offer firsthand accounts from law enforcement officials, inmates, victims and their families.
