The new BBC drama series with ‘Bound’ as it’s working title has been renamed ‘Prisoner’s Wives’. The series started to film during August and September. Jonas has been cast as ‘Steve Rosco’, a regular returning character in the series. Not much is known about his character yet but it’s fair to say he’s probably one of the ‘husbands’ in prison ;p
It’s a 6 part 60minutes series , set to air in Early 2012 according to this latest article in The Mirror.
So far the cast is looking rather great! Apart from Jonas, there’s Polly Walker from ‘Rome’ and Iain Glen who played the love to hate fiancee of Lady Mary in ‘Downton Abbey’.
Here’s the extract from the original BBC Press Release:
Bound (working title), 6 x 60 series, written by Julie Geary (Secret Diary Of A Call Girl, Lip Service), made by Tiger Aspect Productions
The series is about of a group of women who have lost the men in their lives to Her Majesty’s Pleasure. From the innocent mother-to-be who was unaware that her husband was a murderer, to the sophisticated and complicit career-criminal’s wife; these women couldn’t be more different, yet the situation they share brings them together. Expect crime and jeopardy, family and sacrifice, and love and romance. But above all else, expect humanity and humour as the unlikeliest of women find in each other the friendship and family they are missing.
