Tie-Ins: Prisoner Cell Block H

Prisoner Cell Block H is a bit of an oddity - an Australian women's prison soap opera that ran for 692 episodes from 1979 to 1986. 

Pinnacle produced a series of soft-core tie-ins that led to a strike by the cast in protest.

Prisoner: Cell Block by Murray Sinclair

The Franky Doyle Story by Henry Clement
The Karen Travers Story by Maggie O'Shell 
The Frustrations of Vera by Michael Kerr 
The Reign of Queen Bea by Angela Michaels
The Trials of Erica by Mary Carter

A couple more were issued by Mandarin in 1991:

The Showdown by Richard Lane
A Dangerous Affair by Betty Quin
