Hulu has released a new full-length trailer for their upcoming drama Harlots with the first teaser released back in January.
The powerful family drama offers a brand-new take on the city’s most valuable commercial activity: sex. Set in Georgian London during the 18th century, the series is based on the stories of real women and follows Margret Wells and her daughters as she struggles to reconcile her roles as both mother and brothel owner. Her business soon comes under attack from a rival madam Lydia Quigley, who has a ruthless streak, so she must fight back even if it means putting her family at risk.
Told from a ‘whore’s eye view’, the series promises there won’t be any male gazes present in the show and to achieve this, only female directors were hired. The showrunners also promise there to be just as much male nudity as female, unlike many other shows.
Starring Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey), Samantha Morton (Fantastic Beasts) and Lesley Manville (Maleficent).
The eight-part original series premieres March 29th on Hulu.
