Nashville (AP) -- A video is being shown to inmates in California encouraging them to accept transfers to Tennessee.
The video was shot last fall at the Corrections Corporation of America's West Tennessee detention facility.
It praises the living conditions that 80 California inmates have found at the prison located in rural Mason about 35 miles east of Memphis.
Cited are roomier cells shared by only two inmates, ESPN and 78 other TV channels and a "dorm of the week" that allows prisoners to stay up all night watching movies and munching on pizza.
