Failure Isn't Final 

The Hustler Files is a groundbreaking, episodic series following male and female ex-offenders on their redemptive quests to pursue entrepreneurship, be productive citizens and prove that failure isn't final.

Meet ex-offenders Keron and Kia. From their troubled past to their entrepreneurial aspirations and plans they are taking control of their lives. You'll travel alongside them as they hustle to create a new future and you’ll be inspired by their grit, passion, and perseverance to succeed.

But this series is also about the people who stood in the gap to help Keron and Kia on their redemptive quest. It's about prison life and the prison system, starting a conversation and taking that first step to initiate real change.

We'll also look inside the lives of other ex-offenders who have become successful entrepreneurs and the organizations that are available to help those who know their future lies ahead, not behind.
Welcome to Season One of THE HUSTLER FILES!
