Starz has picked up to series the TV series adaptation of Katori Hall’s stripper play P-Valley.

P-Valley, which Project Casting shared the open casting call breakdown for the speaking roles in the series, centers around a group of strip club dancers working in the Dirty Delta. “Down deep in the Mississippi Delta lies an oasis of grit and glitter in a rough patch of human existence where beauty can be hard to find. This southern-fried, hour-long drama tells the kaleidoscopic story of a little-strip-club-that-could and the big characters who come through its doors — the hopeful, the lost, the broken, the ballers, the beautiful, and the damned.”

Starz describes the show as follows: Trap music meets film noir in this lyrical and atmospheric series that dares to ask what happens when small-town folk dream beyond the boundaries of the Piggly Wiggly and the pawnshop.

The show was originally picked up in 2016 and stars Brandee Evans, Nicco Annan, Shannon Thornton, and J. Alphonse Nicholson.

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?
