US LGBT channel Logo has snapped up prison drama Bad Girls, according to reports.

The series, which is has a big lesbian following, was sentenced to mediocrity recently when ITV dropped it from their schedule.

A spokesperson for the programme makers, Shed Productions, said all eight series have been sold to Logo.

She told The Sun: “All eight series – more than 100 hours have been sold to the cable channel Logo which specialises in programmes for gays, lesbians and transsexuals.

“It’s a very big boost for the company especially after Bad Girls and our other drama Footballers’ Wives ending within months of each other.”

A West End musical of the show is also expected in September 2007.
