Edrick Browne is a local actor who, in his spare time, takes on projects that give back to the community. And that’s how he found himself teaching a theater class at the Carol Vance Prison in Richmond, Texas.

He taught inmates about running equipment on a TV shoot, and they in turn documented their experiences of life after prison in an eight-part series titled After the Bid.

Houston Matters producer Edel Howlin talked with Edrick Browne and Success Nwosu, a cast member and cameraman for the series.

Edel began by asking Edrick where the idea came from to teach these skills to inmates.
