Jail Park (comedy)

Jail Park is a comedy in which prisoners become eligible for transfer to a luxurious re-education resort on condition they behave themselves like upstanding citizens, but this requires an almost super-human effort from these short-tempered heavy criminals.

(Clarification: Jail Park has multiple sequels with one recurring theme. The guards are incredibly strict, which means the prisoners cannot make a single mistake or they face getting sent back to the regular prison. However, almost none of them are actually able to change into a model citizen, so most of them just pretend. The acting, the sly tricks to provoke unacceptable behavior, and the solutions they come up to cover up their mistakes give rise to many hilarious situations.)
