Overcrowding in California's prisons has become a huge issue -- so much so that Ted Koppel is apparently planning to produce a TV documentary about the problem. To get a feel for overcrowding, Koppel is negotiating with state corrections officials about the possibility of bunking down for the night in the slammer himself.
