There's a new show coming to Channel 4 and if you're a fan of Derry Girls or Line of Duty then you're going to love it.
Screw is a six-part prison drama that follows Leigh, a female prison officer who works in an all male prison.
It's created by the mastermind writer of Killing Eve - Rob Williams - and features a number of famous faces from mega popular shows Derry Girls, Line of Duty and I May Destroy You.
The official synopsis reads: “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?”
Meanwhile, writer Rob added: “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."
Starring in the show is Nina Sosanya who plays Leigh, as well as Derry Girls star Jamie-Lee O’Donnell.
Line of Duty's Faraz Ayub also features, as well as Game of Thrones actor Ron Donachie and Stephen Wight (I May Destroy You)
Caroline Hollick of Channel 4 said: “Screw offers the audience an insight in to the challenges and struggles faced behind bars for both prisoners and prison officers; told with humour, humanity and hope.”
Filming first kicked off in May, with Screw set to hit our screens in early 2022. We've got a feeling this will be so good!
