New Channel 4 Prison Drama 'Screw' From 'Killing Eve' Creators Will Be Your Next Binge-Watch

New Channel 4 Prison Drama 'Screw' From 'Killing Eve' Creators Will Be Your Next Binge-Watch

A new Channel 4 drama following a female prison officer in and all-male prison sounds like it has all the hallmarks of our next TV obsession.

Written by Killing Eve's Rob Williams (so there's a good start), Screw follows the life of a gang of prison officers working in a rough prison in Britain.

At the head of the team of 'screws' is Leigh, a woman who has devoted her adult life to the prison and maintaining its order.

This is giving us Our Girl vibes.

Giving more details on the juicy plot, Channel 4 says: "On a wing bursting at the seams, at the front line of a train-wreck of broken bureaucracy and short-term thinking, Leigh goes above and beyond for her prisoners.

"But Leigh has her own secrets and a past that if discovered, could cost much more than her job.

"Will mouthy young Rose, a new recruit with her own agenda, mark the end of the line for Leigh - or prove her unlikely saviour?"

Writer Rob Williams - who penned hit BBC series Killing Eve - has previous experience of working in prison, so you know the ride is going to be fully authentic.

He said of the six-part project: "There is so much more to prison and those who live and work there than misery and violence - and I'm incredibly proud to be working with STV and Channel 4 to show this in Screw, alongside the authenticity inspired by my experiences as a civilian worker in various prisons."

Caroline Hollick, Channel 4 Head of Drama, added: "With previous experience of working in prisons, Rob's writing comes from a truly authentic place, having had direct experience of a world which often comes with preconceived judgement.
