on Spike TV

In the 1980s, long before Snoop Dogg and the rest of his crew had found success, they were Westside gang members living a street lifestyle that often included run-ins with the law. Snoop himself spent time inside California’s notorious “Youth Authority” – the CYA – which in recent years has come under court order for abusing and failing to rehabilitate youth. Bigg Snoop Dogg’s Youth Authority: California will tell the story of the CYA, gang activity, and youth violence in a documentary based on Snoop’s story (as told by Snoop himself) and the stories of those youths still in the struggle.

Crazybridge Studios designed the main title and look of the show. Integrating stark images of barbed wire and concrete walls, the design evokes the rough lives and tough messages of this important show.
