Brittney Griner, the WNBA player who spent ten months in a Russian prison, will appear alongside Robin Roberts in an ABC primetime special on Wednesday, May 1. The 20/20 program is titled “Prisoner in Russia: The Brittney Griner Interview.”

“In the wide-ranging interview, Griner talks candidly for the first time about her harrowing arrest and time in prison, where she describes feeling ‘less than human’ and the suicidal thoughts she had while being detained,” 20/20 quoted her as saying. “She also discusses navigating Russia’s penal system and the anguish she felt as a political prisoner.” The show provides new facts about the discussions that led to Griner’s release and follows her home as she unzips her duffle bag from Russia, disclosing a few personal belongings she claims helped her get through the ordeal.
