Every new story we hear or see brings a new perspective and new world to gaze at or ponder upon. Game of Thrones lit the medieval fire of historical kingdoms and wars with an icy spin of fantasy on top of it. We saw dragons, giants, and magic as much a part of the world as human beings and their scheming. Now, a new four-part drama, Adult Material by Channel 4 starring Joe Dempsie (Gendry Baratheon) is at our doors with “an inside look” into the adult film industry and our society’s part in it. The trailer is out, and it’s boldly revealing yet strongly moving! The trailer is marked with a clear age-restricted warning; Strong language and scenes of an adult and sexual nature from the start. So, viewer discretion is advised.
It’s the story of Jolene Dollar, played by Hayley Squires, a working professional in the porn industry. Jolene is a mother of three and tries to lead a normal life like everyone else. She wears her heart on her sleeve and feels proud to be working in the only field where “women get paid more than men”. Joe Dempsie plays Rich, Jolene’s loving and supportive partner/husband.
Jolene’s life starts taking a different course when she meets a young girl, Amy (played by Siena Kelly); she’s a new entry into the industry. Since Amy is not much older than her eldest daughter, Phoebe (played by Alex Jarret), Jolene feels protective about her and forms a bond. A series of events and choices on Amy’s part cause both their lives to turn on their heads while revealing the faces of those around them in the industry and society. The trailer very well presents a roller-coaster ride through Jolene’s life where the ups and downs of a different life are met by her head-on. She is the clear star of the show.
We remember Joe Dempsie as the bastard of Robert Baratheon. After short stints in the earlier seasons, Gendry played an important part in the final battle against White Walkers. His romance with Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) was one of the most talked-about things from the last season of Game of Thrones.
Dempsie is in the background in this new drama and plays a supporting role. But his simple demeanor and reactions set up his character pretty nicely. We hope he finds better luck than Gendry did with Arya at the end.
The cast also includes Rupert Everett, Kerry Godliman, Julian Ovenden, and Phil Daniels in significant roles. Lucy Kirkwood has created and directed the series which will likely have four episodes. Channel 4 describes it as a drama that “will interrogate what’s real, what’s fake, what’s up for sale, and the impact that these things have on the individuals involved”. The trailer didn’t give out any release dates, but it’s coming soon perhaps.
