Scared Straight, the 1978 Oscar-winning documentary in which hardened prisoners lectured and often berated at-risk teens to keep them out of trouble with the law, will be resurrected as an A&E television program. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the cable network has ordered four one-hour specials of Beyond Scared Straight that will air in winter 2011.
