This is what I found on TheHill.com:
NBC News anchor Lester Holt recently spent two nights inside the largest maximum security prison in the U.S. for a “Dateline NBC” documentary on mass incarceration and criminal justice reform.
“The important thing for me was that we didn’t go as some kind of a gimmick, that this would be a reporting device,” he added. “We tried to be as unobtrusive with the cameras as possible, which allowed me to have organic conversations with people. I think we built a level of trust with those we spoke with.”
Inside America’s largest maximum security prison:@LesterHoltNBC spent 3 days in Angola, where he stayed in a cell block reserved for high-risk offenders and spoke with guards and prisoners about what life is like inside the prison.
