Clink

Clink

LA Productions' new drama Clink will air every Thursday at 9pm for 10 weeks from Thursday 18th April on 5STAR. Former Brookside and Emmerdale actress, Gillian Kearney, makes her directorial debut in the series, which is produced by Donna Molloy.

"It is fantastic to see how, in less than 10 months, Clink has transformed into a wonderful piece of television created by our talented team of actors, writers and directors," said Colin McKeown, Owner and Executive Producer at LA Productions.

"This was an exciting challenge for those involved, the quickest turnaround of any production that we have had the pleasure of working on. It showcases another string to our bow for producing excellent television."

As well as having a female cast, the show was predominantly produced by women, with 6 of the 7 writers and the majority of the directors being female. The cast includes Alicya Eyo, Christine Tremarco, Paul Broughton, Katherine Rose Morley, Lu Corfield and Trudie Goodwin.

"This is an unflinching drama filled with shocking moments inspired by real events in our prison system. The show will resonate with viewers who will come to sympathise with the characters portrayed on screen as they go on a spiritual journey from start to finish," explained Sarah Deane, Showrunner and Series Script Editor for LA Productions, who penned the series opener and finale for Clink.

LA Productions' Head of Development, Justine Potter, led the research process, spending days with former prisoners and guards to get an accurate representation of life in an all-female prison.
