Women In Chains!

Rose McGowanIt's not exactly Live Nude Girls!, but close, no? Women In Chains!, for our purposes here, serves as the title of a new show described as a violent drama set at a women's prison that Robert Rodriguez is now shopping around. If you're thinking, "Wait, isn't HBO doing a women's prison series?" you would be correct. But if we can have two shows about bikers, there has to be room for two shows about women's prisons.

The show, written by Josh Miller and Mark Fortin, will star Rodriguez's fiancee, Rose McGowan. She'll play one of five women central to the show. It's rumored to have a 70s exploitation feel, and there's talk of mud wrestling. Alan Ball's Bad Girls most likely takes HBO out of the equation, but I'd certainly prefer Showtime over any of the normal networks, just for the freedom it would provide. The linked article mentions NBC and FX as receiving the spec script. Should it end up at either of those, it will be interesting to see how what looks to be an envelope pushing show plays out under the tighter restrictions.

Women in Chains? Really? Because god knows there's nothing hotter than the idea of bound women in captivity.

Rose McGowan. Hot damn!

I think that about sums it up. The show sounds crap but I appreciate the picture.

FX? USA? What a waste. This series should not be in anything less then "Showtime". Or late night Cinemax.
