    Hello!

    My name is Florence Schuttelaar and i’m working for a Dutch television production company “No Pictures Please”. Within this company we are working on a tv series about Youth Detention Centers. In addition, we want to visit various juvenile prisons around the world that are notorious. We want all the (8) prisons to be notorious for different reasons. So one juvenile prison that is notorious for overcrowding and poor health conditions, one for fighting by gangs, one for corrupt or violent prison staff, one for escapes and riots etc. In addition we want to film one notorious juvenile prison for girls. And we are also looking for a prison where there is a juvenile prisoner with a very special case, such as a school shooter or a juvenile serial killer. At te moment we are interested in juvenile detention centers in the USA, but we want to film in 8 different countries.

    We are looking for a fixer that knows a notorious juvenile prison (or more) and can fix that we can film in that juvenile prisons, that can fix that we can speak to the detainees and who can provide transport, permits also from the ministry etc.

    We look forward to hear from you and want to thank you in advance,
