Director Robert Rodriguez is currently shopping around a television series Women In Chains that would feature his girlfriend Rose McGowan in chains behind bars. It’s a throwback idea to the old prison exploitation flicks that he and Quentin Tarantino are always spouting about.
The spec script, penned by Josh Miller and Mark Fortin, has been sent to a number of networks, including NBC and FX.
McGowan is set play one of five chained women at the center of the show, which Rodriguez is expected to direct. The two first worked together on last year’s “Planet Terror,” Rodriguez’s homage to 1970s exploitation flicks.
Women in prison just doesn’t do much for me so I’d have to pass, but if it’s your thing…then this is some great news.
