Women’s Prisons Are So Hot Right Now

Seriously, women’s prisons are the new black. Three TV shows, currently in the works, will feature babes behind bars. Alan Ball, the writer/creator that brought you Six Feet Under and American Beauty, is slated to do another show at HBO, an adaptation of the award winning British hit, Bad Girls. The program promises to be gripping like the other network’s prison drama success, Oz and perhaps the only one with the chance at an Emmy. Another acclaimed movie man, director Robert Rodriguez, is also working on a women’s prison show and has been shopping the pilot for Women In Chains!. Although it hasn’t found a network home, since it promises sexy stunts like mud wrestling from the likes of Rose McGowan, it’s a matter of time before someone jumps on it. Last, but not least, Fox is making a salacious new show that should even give Rodriguez competition for his vamped up action scenes. A spin-off of Prison Break, the working title for the female version isn’t condescending or sexist at all. Just kidding, it’s Fox afterall, and it’s called Prison Break: Cherry Hill. We’re pretty sure there’s a porno out there with the same title. [TV.com]
