Savannah Chrisley's true crime show will focus on the conditions of prison.

According to the Associated Press, lawyers for Todd and Julie Chrisley were back in court on April 19, 2024 to file appeals on behalf of the incarcerated reality television stars. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta heard arguments from the couple's attorney who also represents Peter Tarantino, who previously worked as their accountant. Savannah and her brother Chase were in the courtroom along with over a dozen supporters.

In response to this, Savannah recorded a special episode of her podcast Unlocked which aired April 23. In it she shared that there is no news regarding the appeals because that decision can take anywhere from a month to a year. What she was able to discuss was a true crime show she's working on. "I'm in my fighting era," said Savannah. "I want to fight to get my parents home. We're ready for justice to be served."

She expressed her frustration about the 1976 Supreme Court decision that gave prosecutors full immunity meaning, they cannot be sued for "misconduct related to their advocacy in the courtroom," per the National Police Accountability Project. And while she did say people will be clamoring for a post-prison reality show, Savannah said her heart is telling her to "focus on a show that's more true crime."

Savannah Chrisley is working with the organization 'Right on Crime.'

Her true crime show will go behind-the-scenes of her parents' cases, and will also highlight her work in prison reform. Savannah has retained a lawyer by the name of Brett Tolman whose organization, Right on Crime, "stands for everything I believe in," she said. Their website describes the organization as a "national campaign of the Texas Public Policy Foundation that supports conservative solutions for reducing crime, restoring victims, reforming offenders, and lowering taxpayer costs."

The ultimate goal for Savannah is to be standing next to Brett, testifying in front of Congress on the "conditions of these prisons, the mistreatment of the men and women in them, the government waste, and the theft." As of the time of this writing, the show is in final negotiations with an unnamed network. "God has placed this in my heart, to work on a project that will change the lives of millions of people," said Savannah.
