Great Point Media and Havas Pictures are excited to share news of the start of production for the eight-part drama series ‘Harlots’ which will air on ITV Encore and Hulu in 2017.
Harlots, from executive producers Debra Hayward and Alison Owen, is set in 18th Century Georgian London. Based on the stories of real women, the series follows Margaret Wells (Samantha Morton) and her daughters as she struggles to reconcile her roles as mother and brothel owner. The production, which starts filming in London in June and stars Samantha Morton and Jessica Brown Findlay, tells the story of a tenacious woman’s grapple with her position in both society and her immediate family. “In 1760s London there were brothels on every corner run by women who were both enterprising and tenacious,” said executive producer Owen. “History has largely ignored them, but their stories are in turn outrageous, brutal, humorous and real.”
