Channel 4 has given the greenlight to Adult Material, a four episode drama series from The Smoke creator Lucy Kirkwood about the porn industry. Sheridan Smith (Cilla, Dates, The Moorside) is attached to star. Adult Material follows Jolene Dollar, who has been working in the porn industry 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. One day on set, Jolene is introduced to 19 year old Amy. She looks after Amy the way that she looks after every new girl on set, but she can’t protect Amy from her own choices.
