P-Valley is one of Starz Network’s biggest and most-talked about TV shows. Set in Mississippi, the drama series centers around Uncle Clifford (Nicco Annan), the non-gender confirming owner of the highly popular local strip club called The PYNK, and the women who work for Uncle Clifford.
Season 1 follows Uncle Clifford to keep the club open, despite her growing debt. It also focused on Autumn (Elarica Johnson) a mysterious newcomer stripper who is running from her past and Mercedes (Brandee Evans), the leader of the strip club, who is planning on retiring until something unexpected happens.
Now a casting call for P-Valley Season 2 is now online, there are some hints at what to come.
What is P-Valley about?
While the show is not based on a true story, the show’s creator Katori Hall says her 2015 play and Cardi B inspired her. “Cardi B literally rolled out the Pynk carpet for P Valley,” Hall told ELLE. “I was following her on social media when she was a dancer because I loved her personality. She was funny as fu*k and smart as fu*k, and even being young, she was this vibrant and political woman who was articulating herself in this powerful way.”
Hall says the show is about humanizing people like Uncle Clifford and the women who work for her, so the world can see beyond the idea they are sex workers.
“For me, this is a humanization project…it’s about making these unreal characters create a bridge of empathy and understanding for women who haven’t had that opportunity to be seen as the full [human] beings that they are,” she told Essence.
