Two-time Academy Award nominee Janet McTeer (Damages, The Honourable Woman) stars in this gritty prison drama by acclaimed British crime writer Lynda La Plante (Prime Suspect, The Commander). After a disastrous riot at Barfield Prison, Helen Hewitt (McTeer) helps investigate an inmate’s suspicious death. When the governor of Barfield is subsequently ousted, Helen takes the job, becoming the youngest woman in charge of an all-male prison. Determined to clean up the place, she causes resentment among both prisoners and officers with her new ideas and no-nonsense attitude. Despite the odds stacked against her, Helen works tirelessly to earn the respect she deserves. With shocking plots and pointed social commentary, The Governor delivers a brutal, unflinching look at prison life and the challenges that women in power confront.
The excellent cast also includes Academy Award nominee Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda), Eamonn Walker (Chicago Fire, Oz), Derek Martin (EastEnders), Ron Donachie (Game of Thrones), and Golden Globe winner Idris Elba (Luther, Thor films).
