Producers are casting the following roles:

  • 2. Autumn Night - Early-mid 20s, African American. “The Chameleon” A perfectly polished beauty with a dark secret tucked in her Louis Vuitton bag. Under murky circumstances, this bad and bougie femme fatale washes up on the shores of the Pink Pony - down and out and totally out of her element, or so it seems.
  • 3. Gidget - Early 20s, Caucasian, “The White Girl” Quirky, earnest, a navel-gazing, trailer-park philosopher. A second generation pole dancer, she views stripping as an Olympic worthy sport.

According to the casting call, actors must be comfortable with comedic and dramatic elements, nudity, sexual situations, pole dancing/stunts/athletics.

About STARZ new series:

The scripted, one-hour drama takes an unflinching and unapologetic look at the lives of pole dancers working down in the Dirty Delta. 

Set in an infamous Mississippi “shake junt” called the Pink Pony, “Pussy Valley” is an intimate window to the unexplored southern strip club world, where the desires of pro-ballers and politicians collide with the dreams of five brave women. For these women, the line between performance and reality becomes blurred, as the drama of their outside lives threaten their onstage personas. On the quest for money, power, and respect, each woman must make a choice. For some it’s a step down, for others a step up, as the Pink Pony stage constantly shape-shifts between a platform for freedom and a gilded cage. In this world of smoke and mirrors, who will fall and who will fly?
