Six Feet Under Creator Alan Ball to Work on Another HBO Series


HBO plans to reunite with Alan Ball, the mastermind behind the dark and wonderful series Six Feet Under, for a drama about female prisoners. Titled Bad Girls, the show is an adaptation of a British series "about the staff and inmates of a women's prison." Reuters has more:

Bad Girls, which bowed out in 2006 after eight seasons on ITV, was praised for its portrayal of the complex relationships among female inmates. It currently airs on MTV Networks' gay-themed channel Logo.

Alan Ball is also the Oscar-winning screenwriter of American Beauty and he recently made his directorial debut with Towelhead, an indie that went to Sundance and will open in select theaters August 8.

Female prisoners seem to be all the rage these days, as Fox plots a spinoff of Prison Break that will be set in a women's prison and of course there's Jennifer Aniston's Goree Girls, the 1940s musical about the singing Texan prisoners. And then there's news today about Robert Rodriguez's "violent drama" TV series set in a women's prison titled Women in Chains! (exclamation point is part of the title, apparently) which will star Rodriguez's fiancee Rose McGowan. And of course, the show "is rumored to be fashioned with a 1970s exploitation sensibility, with such staples like mud wrestling."

I'll be really interested to see how this version compares with the British version

none of the above sounds very interesting to me, even though I loved Six Feet Under (and American Beauty).

The British version is very addictive — I can only imagine that Ball's adaptation will be even more so!

So, like Oz with women? I love Alan Ball and I loved Oz, so that might be really good.
