Adult Material DVD & digital release

I, Daniel Blake star Hayley Squires takes the lead, alongside Quadrophenia's Phil Daniels and Hollywood favourite Rupert Everett (My Best Friend's Wedding), in a gritty, eye-popping new Channel 4 drama Adult Material, which takes us deep inside the British porn industry.

This new hard-hitting drama asks, is consent for sale? It examines the porn industry through the eyes of proud mother of three and family breadwinner Jolene Dollar (Squires), who happens to earn her living as one of the top adult entertainers in the UK. Following its run on Channel 4, Adult Material is set to arrive on DVD and digital on 2 November 2020 from Acorn Media International.

Unconventional career-woman Jolene has been involved in the industry her whole adult life and when 19-year-old Amy (Siena Kelly - Temple) arrives on set, Jolene feels responsible for her, since she's barely older than her own daughter Phoebe (Alex Jarret - Les Miserables). Jolene tries to take Amy under her wing...but she can't protect Amy from her own choices, and before she knows it, Jolene's relationship with this unstable young woman leads to her own career, reputation and personal life coming apart at the seams.

Jolene's long-term business partner Caroll Quinn is played by Everett, while Game of Thrones' Joe Dempsie plays her loving and supportive life-partner Rich. Navigating life, work and judgement, Jolene goes up against intimidating US porn mogul Tom Pain (Julian Ovenden - Downton Abbey) and finds an unlikely ally in anti-porn MP Stella Maitland (Kerry Godliman - After Life).

From Olivier Award-winning playwright and screenwriter Lucy Kirkwood (Chimerica) Adult Material is a timely look at how porn has blurred the lines of consent in mainstream culture.
