G-Spot is an adult comedy television series out of Canada on The Movie Network and Movie Central channels. It also broadcasts on the Showcase and E! networks. Brigitte Bako created, produced and stars in the series. Brigitte Bako plays Gigi and also included in the case is Heather Hanson as Stella, Kimberly Huie as Roxy, Ian Alden as Rick, Hannah Lochner as Sasha, Sebastian Spence as Paul, Kristin Lehman as Francesca and Stephanie Moore as Livia. Gigi is an aging actress over 30 who began her career at around 19 years old. She progressed to being a b-movie queen in order to support her family and parents. Unfortunately, she could never seem to wrangle her way out of low grade movies and has only gotten those roles, despite her lofty efforts. There is much contrast between the lifestyles of the American and Canadian cultures as these differences are highlight throughout the story lines. The show is also focused in a lighthearted way on how aging actresses are treated within the industry, unless they happen to have won many awards. The lack of work available to an older actress is more than apparent as Gigi attempts to find suitable roles to showcase her talents. The situation is complicated by the fact that her former work is less than memorable and most of it is shown as late night station filler for insomniacs. Now it is 14 years later and Gigi returns to her hometown of Canada to care for her sick mother. When her mother passes away, Gigi attempts a comeback in Hollywood, trying to figure out what direction to take. Gigi goes on many bad dates, humiliating auditions and meets and gets to know a variety of new friends. She and her pals about their lives and try to make sense of it all. They spend their time entertaining themselves at parties with shallow people and those who always seem to want something from them.
