TV stasera: Jamie-Lee O’Donnell swaps being a Derry Girl for being a Screw

Based on his experience as a volunteer in a prison, the Killing Eve writer Rob Williams delivers a juicy comedy-drama to rival Bad Girls (bene, perhaps not quite). A ballsy new screw, Rose (Derry Girls star Jamie-Lee O’Donnell), joins an all-male block being run firmly by its enigmatic head officer, Leigh (Nina Sosanya). Rose claims to be here because she is “really good at shutting up dickheads” – but will her first day change that? With dark undertones throughout, the show leans more into its drama side – but there are still a few hard laughs to be had. Hollie Richardson
