Love After Lockup and spinoff Life After Lockup have been game-changers for WE TV as its highest-rated shows. Love During Lockup will show how the kind of relationships on Love After Lockup start. Matt Sharp, who oversees the franchise, says that while Love After Lockup would explain a couple’s origin story, the full stories of how they’d met weren’t being told. “We always have talked a lot about the importance in an authentic series like this of capturing firsts,” says Sharp. “Not just talking about firsts, like, ‘We did this, we did that.’ But actually being there.” By “backing up the timeline,” Sharp said, Love During Lockup will bear witness to those firsts.
