P-Valley is a scripted one-hour drama that takes an unflinching and unapologetic look at the lives of pole dancers working down in the Dirty Delta. Creator and writer Katori Hall will executive produce P-Valley with Chernin Entertainment's Peter Chernin; Jenno Topping; and Dante Di Loreto. Khaliah Neal will serve as consulting producer. The series is based on a play written by Hall. Set in an infamous Mississippi "shake junt" called the Pink Pony, P-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. The series positions itself as a gritty drama that empowers its female characters. It also takes advantage of the standards of premium cable TV to include plenty of sex and nudity to entice those looking for something more provocative. P-Valley debuted in 2020 to broadly positive reviews from critics. It is praised for combining the low brow fun of a soap opera with some artfully crafted drama. Audience reactions were generally less positive, but reception of the series overall has been successful.
