TV Preview: Adult Material

Channel 4
Tuesday, 10 March 2020 - 7:00pm
The May Fair Hotel, Stratton St, Mayfair, London W1J 8LT
A preview of Channel 4’s four-part drama followed by a Q&A with director Dawn Shadforth, writer Lucy Kirkwood and actors Hayley Squires, Siena Kelly and Kerry Godliman.

Written by Lucy Kirkwood (Chimerica) and directed by Dawn Shadforth (Trust). The series follows Jolene Dollar (Hayley Squires), a regular mother of three, who is the proud breadwinner of the family. However, Jolene does not have the most conventional of careers: she is one of the top porn performers in the UK.

Adult Material ventures into Jolene’s world - to a place that influences all of our lives, whether we know it or not. Interrogating what’s real, what’s fake, what’s up for sale and the impact that these things have on the individuals involved.

The cast includes Siena Kelly (Vanity Fair), Kerry Godliman (Afterlife), Joe Dempsie (Game of Thrones), Julian Ovenden (Downton Abbey), Phil Daniels (A Very Very Very Dark Matter) and Rupert Everett (The Happy Prince).
