Starz producing strip-club drama ‘P-Valley’ in Atlanta

Originally posted Friday, March 8, 2019 by RODNEY HO/ on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

Starz is returning to Atlanta this spring to shoot a new series about a strip club called “P-Valley.” 

It’s based on Katori Hall’s play “Pussy Valley” and stars Brandee Evans  (”The Bobby Brown Story”) and Nicco Annan (“This is Us”)  with Shannon Thornton (“Power”) and J. Alphonse Nicholson (“Chicago P.D.”) as series regulars.

The drama, according to its official description, “is set down deep in the Mississippi Delta, where lies an oasis of grit and glitter in a rough patch of human existence where beauty can be hard to find. The 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. 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.”

Being set in a strip club, it’s not surprising it ended up on a pay-cable network. 

The show is currently seeking extras. 

-Extras of all looks and ethnicities
-Extras with cars
-Extras with motorcycles
-Extras with bartending experience
-Exotic dancers
-Strip Club Patron extras
-Hispanic men and women
-Experienced nail technicians
-Church extras
-Children ages 1-16

Starz shot “Survivor’s Remorse” in Atlanta. It was a modern-day dramedy about a basketball player who suddenly becomes rich and adjusts to life in Atlanta. It aired four seasons from 2014 to 2017.
