Created by Oriane Messina and Fay Rusling, the 1980s-set drama “charted the early years of retail company Ann Summers through the prism of four women who find fulfilment from selling lingerie and sex toys to customers within the privacy of their own homes.” The cast included Penelope Wilton, Sharon Rooney, Angela Griffin, Sophie Rundle, and Chloe Pirrie.
Co-creator Messian confirmed the cancellation on her Twitter:
