"The world’s unquenchable need for entertainment has turned towards bloodlust as entertainment behemoth TEC1 is set to premiere season two of its television sensation Scum. This new season moves the contest from the rugged, enclosed Alcatraz sector to the full grandeur of Bagne de Cayenne, an island with a sordid history of violent incarceration. Both fan favourites and new prisoners will clash in a ruthless war of survival while battling for the support of viewers, producers, and corporate sponsors for fame, gifts, and a chance of life after death."
