Starz wants to develop the play Pussy Valley into a series. The play was penned from the mind of Katori Hall Olivier, Award-winning playwright from Memphis, Tennessee. Hall is said to be the showrunner of Pussy Valley which Starz may call P-Valley, a pending title.
According to Shadow and Act, Hall's play has been picked for TV development since 2016. The plot for P-Valley is described as:
"Down deep in the Mississippi Delta lies an oasis of grit and glitter in a rough patch of human existence where beauty can be hard to find.
"This southern-fried, hour-long drama tells the kaleidoscopic story of a little-strip-club-that-could and the big characters who come through its doors—the hopeful, the lost, the broken, the ballers, the beautiful, and the damned. Trap music meets film noir in this lyrical and atmospheric series that dares to ask what happens when small-town folk dream beyond the boundaries of the Piggly Wiggly and the pawnshop."
The director for the first episode has been chosen, Starz tagged in Karena Evans, the 6-god globally known as Drake, go to music video director for videos such as God's Plan and Nice For What. Senior VPs of original programming Marta Fernandez and Susan Lewis are the Starz executives in charge of P-Valley. Khaliah Neal will be a consulting producer and Patrik-Ian Polk will be co-executive producer. Katori Hall executive produces with Chernin Entertainment.
