An interesting TV flick

I did not know this TV series at all. I just discover it. And I am highly interested in viewing the following.

It seems all the stories of these shows are inspired from actual facts. All related with LA county jail. This episode takes place in women's can. But it's not just another women's prison film. I did not expect that. The lead - Joan Banks - is in jail for murder, she has a son, and we can feel some empathy for her. But in the same time, we can watch her being the "evil" one in search of an inmate who is an undercover cop. That's unusual, because in other prison films, the leads are always the good ones, who often fight to prove their innocence. Or, why not, the undercover cops...

The ending is also interesting.

I recommend it.

Directed by Ted Post, the future director of Magnum Force.
