Hard Cell is a new Netflix comedy series written and directed by Catherine Tate (Doctor Who, The Office, The Catherine Tate Show), who plays multiple characters in the program. (I wonder if Nan and Lauren Cooper will be amongst them.)

Set in a women’s prison, the show follows a documentary crew as they follow the inmates and staff of HMP Woldsley, capturing the penal system at its brutal humorous best.

Said Executive Producer Kristian Smith of Leopard Pictures:

“We cannot wait to show audiences on Netflix the inside of HMP Woldsley, our fictional prison occupied by the fantastic creations of Catherine Tate. This series is funny and touching all at once, revealing what life might be like in a British women’s correctional facility.”

Added Catherine Tate, as only she could:

“Exciting aint it? Exciiiiiiiiiiiting!!!”

Currently in production, the six-episode Hard Cell will launch on Netflix in 2022.

Stay tuned for updates.
