UK prison drama Screw, which centres around a group of embattled prison officers, will screen on BritBox from this week.
Set in fictional Long Marsh Prison, Screw closely follows a group of embattled prison officers, aka ‘screws’.
Blackly comic, refreshingly absurd, and violently shocking, their stories powerfully reveal that there’s more to life in prison than we know.
In charge of C-Wing is Leigh Henry, played by Nina Sonsanya (W1A, Silk, Marcella, Love Actually), a career officer who’d do anything for her prisoners – but she has a secret that if discovered, could cost her the job. With the arrival of fiery new recruit Rose Gill played by Jamie-Lee O’Donnell (Derry Girls), Leigh must risk everything in her fight to hold onto the job that defines her. As tensions mount between Leigh and Rose, we discover that Rose has a secret too – one that could prove deadly.
Also starring Faraz Ayub (Line of Duty), Stephen Wight (Manhunt) and Laura Checkley (King Gary, Detectorists).
Thursday 17th February on BritBox.
