  • Todd and Julie Chrisley are "working" on tell-all books about their experiences in prison.

  • That's according to their daughter, Savannah Chrisley, in a video interview with the Daily Mail.

  • "They're definitely documenting every little thing that goes on," Savannah said.

Savannah Chrisley, daughter of imprisoned reality stars Todd Chrisley and Julie Chrisley, has shared an update on how her parents are doing behind bars.

In a video interview with the Daily Mail, the 26-year-old said her parents are "working" on books about their experiences in prison and have been emailing each other.

The couple are serving sentences at two separate minimum-security prisons in Florida and Kentucky after being found guilty of 12 counts of bank fraud and tax evasion last year.

Asked how her parents are doing to keep busy on the inside, Savannah said: "They may be working on books, they may. Who knows? But they're definitely documenting every little thing that goes on."

She added there are a lot of people in the system who get "lost" and people "don't seem to care to hear their stories," suggesting that her parents may use their books to shine a light on such individuals.

Asked about how often she's staying in touch with them both, the "Growing Up Chrisley" star said she talks to them both multiple times a day on the phone.

As for each other, Savannah refuted the rumor that the pair hadn't had any communication since they entered prison in January following the November 2022 sentencing.

"They're emailing a little bit," she said, before explaining that Todd and Julie have had issues with letters reaching them.

"What's unfortunate is you have people in these prisons who are holding their mail," she said.

Elsewhere in the interview, the "Unlocked" podcast host accused those running her parents' prisons of being "corrupt" and claimed that they are "padlocking the ice machines just to retaliate against the inmates" in extreme heat conditions.

She said there was also "retaliation happening because of how I'm exposing things," because she has spoken extensively about her parents' dire prison conditions in the past, but added: "If it means we make a change for the greater good, then they're willing to be uncomfortable."

Savannah's comments come after Insider was the first to report that Todd and Julie had their sentences reduced.

Todd's scheduled release date from FPC Pensacola got bumped up to January 22, 2033, which is about two years sooner than his initial 12-year sentence, according to federal prison records.

Meanwhile, Julie's release from FMC Lexington has advanced to October 19, 2028, records indicate — 15 months short of her original seven-year sentence.

"Without a doubt, Todd and Julie are model incarcerated individuals who received exorbitant sentences," their attorney, Jay Surgent, told Insider in a statement. "I believe Todd is down to 10 years and Julie is now at five years."

Surgent believes that the implementation of new sentencing guidelines in November will further reduce their sentences.
