Bad Girls was a British television drama series that was broadcast on ITV from 1999 to 2006. It was produced by Shed Productions, the company which later produced Footballers' Wives and Waterloo Road . It was set in the fictional women's prison of Larkhall, and featured a mixture of serious and light storylines focusing on the prisoners and staff of G Wing. The earlier series were rather gritty; by a couple of series in, more far-fetched storylines began to be introduced. By the last couple of series, the show very much used its by-then often over-the-top storylines as a selling point.
