THE ‘NIKKI WADE FALLING IN LOVE AND GETTING THE GOVERNOR HELEN STEWART’ STORYLINE? IS HARD TO SEE ON U.S. TV WITH THEIR STRANGE MORAL CODE ON TV PROGRAMMES, (THEY LIKE THEIR GAY CHARACTERS MISERABLE). BUT IF THEY DO A ‘SHAMELESS’ ON IT AND MAKE THE SHOW TOTALLY AMERICAN IT COULD WORK.
NBC is getting together with some “Bad Girls” — and they’re going about it in a “Shameless” way.
The network has given the go-ahead to “Shameless” showrunner and “E.R.” creator John Wells’ one-hour drama pilot “Bad Girls,” an adaptation of the British crime drama of the same name. Wells will executive-produce the pilot, a women-in-prison affair that centers around a scandalous female warden, her lackey and a host of female inmates “who struggle with loyalties to people on the inside and outside.”
