Hard Cell, a 6 episode mockumentary about a British women's correctional facility, airs April 12 on Netflix.
Catherine Tate plays multiple characters 
A comedy where Catherine Tate portrays multiple characters as a documentary crew follows the inmates and staff of HMP Woldsley prison to capture the penal system at its brutal, humorous best. 

LAURA is HMP Woldsley's governor. A self-styled prison reformer convinced staging musicals will provide a platform for her belief that creativity leads to rehabilitation. Her detractors would describe her as a 'bleeding heart liberal in kitten heels', a description she wouldn't hate.

MARCO is a guard from Essex. He got down to the last 32 on Love Island so he's got nothing to prove. More committed to his appearance than his job, which he only took because he can get to work without changing tubes.

ROS is a popular, bouncy inmate who idolizes her mother. Loves her prison wife Suds, pretends to love her pen pal boyfriend Sebastian but is in fact, rinsing him for all he's worth. What? It's not her fault that people are so trusting.

ANNE MARIE is Ros' mother. A tough, mean, ex-con, who visits her daughter whenever she has run out of money. Contemptuous and scathing, she takes full advantage of her daughter's unconditional love.

ANGE is a timid first-timer. An innocent, struggling to adapt to her new environment, her meekness making her easy prey. But she lives by her mantra "People are inherently good" and despite her misfortune, she overcomes her fears, settles in and even finds her prison walk.

BIG VIV is terrifying, feared by inmates and prisoners alike. Violent, unpredictable and singing is her happy place – everything you'd want in a cellmate. A devoted fan of the Kardashians, with whom she identifies deeply, Vivienne develops a passion for theatre as she becomes involved with the musical.

Hard Cell also stars 
Christian Brassington as Dean
Niky Wardley as Anastasia
Lorna Brown as Cal
Caroline Harding as Sal
Jola Olajide as Charlee
Duncan Wisbey as Martin

Thought a lot of the women looked alike! 🤣

Marco looks like he has dirt on both sides of his face-really bad make up job!
