Bad Girls is a British television drama series that was broadcast on ITV from 1 June 1999 until 20 December 2006. It was created by Maureen Chadwick and Ann McManus of Shed Productions, who initiated the idea of developing a series primarily focusing on the inmates and staff of the fictional women’s prison, Larkhall, located in South London. Following the success of previous series Within These Walls (1974-78) and the Australian-imported Prisoner: Cell Block H (1979-86), both of which screened on ITV, Bad Girls was commissioned by the network and was a realistic, modern portrayal of life in a women’s prison. The series featured a large ensemble cast, including Vicky Alcock, Kika Mirylees and Tracey Wilkinson.
