Sheridan Smith to star in new Channel 4 drama Adult Material

The new four-part drama written by Lucy Kirkwood will explore sex, power and consent through the lens of porn in the UK today.

Set in modern Britain, Adult Material delves inside the porn industry from the perspective of a woman who has been working in it her entire adult life and has seen it grow from a seedy backroom enterprise to a legitimate and highly profitable arm of the telecommunications business.

That woman is Jolene Dollar, a mum-of-three who is also a leading British porn star for two decades. Maybe in porn years she’s getting on, but she's a hard worker and she loves what she does. After all, porn is one of the only industries in the world where women don’t just get paid equal to men…they get paid more.
