Letters From The Slammer: New FunnyOrDie Web Series | Based On Real Letters From A Convict

Logo

The latest web series to hit FunnyOrDie is perhaps the most original I’ve ever come across. Unlike most script-based web shows, “Letters From The Slammer” is written by a former inmate of a maximum security prison.

The co-creator of the show, on the other hand, hasn’t done any hard time. Though he claims that he “has seen the Shawshank Redemption” before.


When writer/producer Darryl Francis served more than 6 years at a maximum security prison in California, he found himself in solitary confinement with “nothing but scraps of paper and a pencil stub.” To cope with the time and entertain his fellow inmates he wrote fake letters to a variety of imaginary friends and family.

Cast

Co-director and writer Dean Ward, who has worked on TV shows such as “The Late Late Show,” The Chelsea Handler Show,” and “Penn & Teller Bullshit.” When he was introduced to Darryl’s work via his manager, web series history was made.

Episode 1

In this first episode, Darryl’s Momma shows that the bad boys in jail “ain’t shit” compared to her wrath of over protection. If this is an example of a typical episode, I’m sure we’re in for a treat.
