Catherine Tate is a well-known name in the UK; she’s loud, feisty, and never fails to keep all eyes on her. She is a brilliant comedian and has landed many brilliant roles throughout her career, soon to include the lead in new Netflix series, Hard Cell.
Netflix is the lead in streaming entertainment, with 208 million paid memberships and 190 countries enjoying the vast content on Netflix provides. Users can enjoy Netflix Originals, TV series, movies, documentaries and more!
Tate was born in December, 1969, in Bloomsbury, London. She has earned numerous awards for her work on the BBC sketch series, The Catherine Tate Show, where she played numerous characters in different and hilarious scenarios.
Her own series, however, was just one of the things that caused her to be beloved by British audiences. Tate played Donna Noble on long running and ever-popular BBC One series Doctor Who, with David Tennant playing the titular role at the time.
Donna Noble was a companion to The Doctor, and her empathy, love, and sassy personality made her one of the best companions on the show. Donna’s reason for leaving the TARDIS and The Doctor moved much of the nation to tears, and many fans still miss her to this day.
Tate’s upcoming series, which will contain six episodes and debut on Netflix next year (2022), is bound to be a laugh-a-minute comedy show. Similarly to The Catherine Tate Show, the comedy actress will be playing multiple characters, but this time from within a prison.
The show will run much like a documentary, as the camera crew follow the inmates and staff at HMP Woldsley prison, capturing the penal system at its harsh yet hilarious best.
When interviewed about the series, Tate simply said, “Exciting aint it? Exciiiiiiiiiiiting!!!”.
Kristian Smith, executive producer on the show, stated that “We cannot wait to show audiences on Netflix the inside of HMP Woldsley, our fictional prison occupied by the fantastic creations of Catherine Tate.”
Smith continued to say that, “This series is funny and touching all at once, revealing what life might be like in a British women's correctional facility.”
From Tate’s excited screams and Smith’s more details account of what the show will involve, Hard Cell is already shaping up to be yet another series the comedian can show off and be proud of.
Hard Cell will be on Netflix sometime in 2022; we can’t wait to see what new characters Tate and her team have cooked up!
