A female-led “non secular successor” to “Peaky Blinders” is within the works at BBC One. Deadline reviews that “Dope Women” will delve “into the historical past of Soho’s legal underworld.”
Set within the early twentieth century, the six-part collection is reportedly partly based mostly on “the true story of conservative, god-fearing 42-year outdated single mom Kate Meyrick, who builds a nightclub empire and legal household enterprise and turns into probably the most harmful lady in London in addition to a competitor to Good Chang, the baron of Soho’s gritty underworld. Her nightclubs are fuelled by medication and alcohol that enable for a era of World Struggle I veterans and survivors to overlook their trauma and break by means of the inflexible patriarchal constructions of the period to permit ladies to bop, have intercourse, and do medication with whoever they need.”
Written by Polly Stenham (“The Neon Demon”) and Alex Warren (“Eleanor”), the collection is impressed by Marek Kohn’s non-fiction ebook “Dope Women: The Beginning of the British Drug Underground.”
“Dope Women” doesn’t have a U.S. dwelling but, however talks with co-production companions and international streaming providers are underway.
