Channel 4 has released the first trailer for a new four-part drama, Adult Material, which “delves inside the porn industry”.
It sees Hayley Squires (I, Daniel Blake) star as lead character Jolene Dollar – one of the top porn performers in the country, and a mother to three kids.
The show follows Jolene as she befriends and looks after a young woman named Amy – played by Siena Kelly (Vanity Fair) – who is new to the porn industry. But when Amy’s personal choices put a strain on their friendship, Jolene’s own career and home life start to unravel.
In addition to Kelly, the trailer also introduces us to other members of the supporting cast, including Alex Jarrett, who plays Jolene’s oldest daughter Phoebe, and Rupert Everett (My Best Friend’s Wedding) who plays Jolene’s long-term friend, producer and businessman Carroll Quinn.
Other cast members include Kerry Godliman (Afterlife), Joe Dempsie (Game of Thrones), Julian Ovenden (Downton Abbey) and Phil Daniels (A Very Very Very Dark Matter).
