Brief Encounters introduces Steph, Pauline, Nita and Dawn as unlikely entrepreneurs who begin to sell exotic lingerie - to the dismay (and often delight) of their loved ones
A new drama series focusing on the domestic lives of four Ann Summers party planners has been commissioned by ITV.
In what promises to be a “fresh, frank and funny” series, Brief Encounters follows four unlikely entrepreneurs whose lives are revolutionised by selling exotic lingerie.
Set in the early 1980s, Brief Encounters is inspired by the early chapters of Good Vibrations, the memoir of Ann Summers’ CEO Jacqueline Gold.
It is the first drama to be made for ITV by award-winning indie CPL Productions.
CPL’s Arabella McGuigan and Danielle Lux will executive produce the series alongside the series’ writer-creators Fay Rusling and Oriane Messina.
“We’re really excited by this commission,” said ITV Director of Drama Steve November, who ordered the series with Head of Drama Series Jane Hudson. “It's full of heart, story and great new characters and we're very much looking forward to working with Danielle Lux, Arabella McGuigan and their production team at CPL.”
Casting for the series is currently underway and filming in due to commence in February 2016.
