These episodes will be airing weekly at 10pm on Mondays on Channel 4.
Writer Kirkwood recently opened up to Channel 4 about why she wanted to create the drama.
She explained: “Porn is a part of our lives, whether we know it or not, but as a society we don’t know anything about how it’s made.
“What it is at heart I think is a story about class.
“Once I started to look at porn much more closely, I started to understand better what the appeal of a job that is so unappealing to most of us is, and I felt that for many of the women I encountered especially, that appeal was practical.
“The chance for working-class women to make a good wage, at least for a finite time, while still being able to fit a career around child care and time with their kids in a way that a job in the gig economy or at a supermarket, say, simply doesn’t allow.”
Other cast members in the show include Joe Dempsie as Jolene’s partner Rich and Julian Ovenden as the US porn boss Tom Pain.
Kerry Godliman plays MP Stella Maitland while Siena Kelly plays porn newcomer Amy Deighton.
Adult Material begins on Channel 4 tonight (October 5) at 10pm.
