All I remember is in the show prisoners were given a lethal injection, then find themselves in a strange world, hell or an alien planet. Possibly part of an experiment?

Further detail: It was on tv in the 90's. Death row prisoners were injected, but the injection transported them to an hellish world instead as if part of a conspiracy known only to the jail.

    When did you watch it? Was it in English? Do you remember anything about main characters - if they were male/female/giant creatures? Was it in color? Anything you remember, no matter how small may help us help you. – phantom42 Jul 16 '13 at 18:43
  • The question is half searching for "Alcatraz" as an answer. But if your description of the plot point is accurate, then I'm wrong. – Ihor Sypko Jul 16 '13 at 18:46
  • Probably not it, but just in case, the SyFy adaptation of Philip José Farmer's Riverworld – Mr Lister Jul 16 '13 at 18:49
  • Did it have D.B. Sweeney in it, released around 2000-2002 time frame? Were they stuck in a computer program ran by a man named Santiago? – Jersey Jul 16 '13 at 21:47

    It sounds like the Outer Limits episode "The Sentence" in which an inventor inadvertently condemns himself to a lengthy term in a virtual prison, a hellish penal environment that he himself created. – Valorum Dec 29 '13 at 20:08

I think the show that you are thinking of is "The Burning Zone" and the episode name is "Lethal Injection". Good luck finding it as I never was able to. It was on the CW when it was UPN.
