New Catherine Tate comedy Hard Cell from Leopard Pictures will launch on 12th April. The six parter is a documentary style comedy set in the fictional female prison, HMP Woldsley.

Writer and creator Catherine Tate plays multiple characters from Laura Willis, the Governor who believes creativity leads to rehabilitation, to Big Viv, the psychopath lifer.

Set over a six week period during which the inmates rehearse a musical directed by ex-Eastender’s star Cheryl Fergison. Rehearsals draw together an oddball collection of women as they find their voices, grow in confidence and strengthen their friendships.

Executive producer is Kristian Smith.
