A Prison Break spin-off with women?
I realize that there have been television shows about women in prison before. The most popular one is the Australian series called The Prisoner of Cell Block H. The article also mentions a previous Fox short-lived sitcom called Women In Prison.
Admittedly, I don't watch Prison Break, but I hear it's a good show. My guess is that Fox saw the success of the Grey's Anatomy spin-off from ABC and wanted to try something similar. However, keep in mind that this is Fox we're talking about. I'm willing to bet that they would do the show more in the style of those Italian women-in-prison movies from the '70s.
I'm sure this spin-off would have more plot and characterization than those movies ever did. But still, if this comes to fruition, want to bet the first episode has a scene that involves all the women taking a shower together?
