Show Description

Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 News Team are back on the Toronto news scene. Only one problem, hobnobbing with Rob Ford and Justin Trudeau has its risks and they get caught smoking the pot by the po-po. With Harper's 'tough on crime' agenda, this minor offence lands them in the slammer. What's more... Harper budget cuts and his fear of a Canadian 'Pussy Riot' have led to the world’s first co-ed kind-of-like-res-but-in-lockdown federal prison. There, they meet the women from The Orange is the New Black and learn what it really means to 'drop the moisturizer'. Will they discover the extent of Warden Harper's plan before it threatens the lives of every clean air loving, green party voting, marijuana smoking, left-leaning pinko in Canada? Tune in to the Prison News to find out.
