It is the year of the imprisoned women drama series.

Director Robert Rodriguez is shopping around Women in Chains! a violent drama set at a woman’s prison starring his fiancee, Rose McGowan.

The spec script, penned by Josh Miller and Mark Fortin, has been sent to a number of networks, including NBC and FX.

McGowan is set play one of five chained women at the center of the show, which Rodriguez is expected to direct. The two first worked together on last year’s Planet Terror, Rodriguez’s homage to 1970s exploitation flicks.

The new show also is rumored to be fashioned with a 1970s exploitation sensibility, with such staples like mud wrestling. Details about the plot were first leaked to AintItCool.com earlier this week.

Women behind bars has become a running theme of late. Chains! comes on the heels of HBO’s deal to do an American version of the British female prison drama Bad Girls with Alan Ball, Nancy Oliver and Raelle Tucker.
