SCANDALOUS FIRST TEASER FOR 'HARLOTS' 18TH CENTURY SET TV SERIES WITH SAMANTHA MORTON, JESSICA BROWN FINDLAY

 FIRST 'HARLOTS' TRAILER
STARRING SAMANTHA MORTON AND JESSICA BROWN FINDLAY
I will not lie to you, my spylings! When it comes to epic programmes, the newly arrived year 2017 will not come even close to 2016 which was, honestly, probably the best year in history in the genre of period set series, bringing us such master pieces as were War and Peace, Medici: Masters of Florence, Versailles, Victoria, Poldark, Beowulf, Jericho, Indian Summers, Home Fires, Tutanhkamun, Doctor Thorne, Marco Polo, And Then There Were None.... There will be some costume drama, though: you saw the first teaser for Starz' White Princess two days ago, and today Hulu and ITV are presenting us with the first, positively scandalous, teaser for HARLOTS, their new period set mini series!
BROTHELS AND HARLOTS
To bring outrageous scandal, slutty delights and sin to the small screens from March 29th, HARLOTS, an eight part series, will have the cast lead by Samantha Morton, Lesley Manville and JessicaBrown Findlay!  Set against the backdrop of 18th century Georgian London, HARLOTS is a powerful family drama offering a brand new take on the city’s most valuable commercial activity - sex. Based on the stories of real women, the series follows Margaret Wells (SamanthaMorton) and her daughters, as she struggles to reconcile her roles as mother and brothel owner. When her business comes under attack from Lydia Quigley (Lesley Manville), a rival  madam with a ruthless streak, Margaret will fight back, even if it means putting her family at risk. Brown Findlay will star as Charlotte, Margaret’s eldest daughter and the city’s most coveted courtesan who begins to grapple with her position in both society and her immediate family.

Well that certainly sounds like a lot of fun! Can't wait to see the costumes. We do love costumes.

DEZMOND said...

I'm guessing they will be out of their costumes a lot :)

Phil said...

Intense and beautiful!

H.R. Sinclair said...

DEZMOND said...

DEZMOND said...

and spicy, from the whore's eye view

Who doesn't like the odd harlot and a corset!

DEZMOND said...

Brown Findlay is one of my favorites. I was so pissed when she left Downton Abbey. I'm sure she'll be great in Harlots!

Rog said...

Oh, this looks promising indeed!!!! :D Cheers Dez!

DEZMOND said...

that is what I say too :)

DEZMOND said...

not that we like georgian wigs that much :)

DEZMOND said...

sadly, she didn't do much with her career after Downton. Although she was choosing warm and magical films, they were all flops. I'm guessing Hollywood does not need two Emilia Clarkes

DEZMOND said...

thanks, Rog!

Weaver said...

Sounds slutty, indeed. There stories are so much deeper than the surface implies, I imagine.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

A spicy period piece/costume drama indeed.

DEZMOND said...

deeper and spicy, methinks

DEZMOND said...

such a thrill, indeed

Sharon said...

Oh wow, I bet they didn't enjoy their job too much

Sherry Ellis said...

I don't think I'd enjoy wearing a harlot's costume. Much too uncomfortable!

DEZMOND said...

why not? Who doesn't enjoy shagging all day long?

DEZMOND said...

yes, them wigs especially

Theresa Mahoney said...

Maybe she should have stuck with it. It seems I am seeing Dockery all over the place now and she was one of my least favorites on the show!

DEZMOND said...

yes, I cannot stand her either, she's a Hayley Atwell copycat, methinks
