A remake of Prisoner: Cell Block H, it’s set in modern-day Australia and focuses on Bea Smith, when she first enters prison after being charged with the attempted murder of her husband. Bea is separated from her daughter and sent to Wentworth on remand, where she lives in “an uncertain limbo” until she is sentenced. Bea is then forced to learn how the prison works.

As weird as this is to say… the show does a pretty amazing job with lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered characters.

I know!
