New female prison drama Odsúdené to show first lesbian relationship on Slovakian television

Slovakia has just started airing its new drama Odsúdené (Convicted) about a woman’s prison. Yes, it’s like the Slovakian Bad Girls.

The series revolves around Eva Kolarova (played by Zuzana Maurery) who gets send to jail for drunk driving – she crashed into another vehicle, whose passenger died and she almost killed her own son Filipom.

Her husband no longer wants anything to do with her and she only has her parents who stand by her. Now she must adjust to prison life, which is totally different than what she was used to, with its own set of rules.

In the women’s prison it is all about surviving, not losing face, about fear and deceit and more of that kind of stuff. It’s also the kind of place where Sapphic affairs tend to arise. At least, that’s what usually happens on TV shows set in prison and Odsúdené seems no exception.

Judging by the promo of tomorrow’s episode, it looks like the start of a lesBian relationship. Even if it is not, this still means one of the few – if not the first – lesbian kisses on Slovakian television.

Is this the kind of show you would be interested in watching?

New episodes of Odsúdené air in Slovakia on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and also in the Czech Republic on Mondays and Wednesdays. You can find out more on the series' website.

Unfortunately no subtitled episodes or summaries are available yet, but if these lesbian storylines continue I am sure it will just be a matter of time. We will keep you up to date.
