Adult Material Channel 4 Review

I’ve been waiting for Adult Material on Channel 4 since I saw the previews several weeks ago. It was on TV last Monday, and it was a really good watch.

It’s a kind of British porn drama, which takes a dark and light look around the world of porn. The glamorous party side, plus the mundane and darker sides of what goes on.

It stars Jolene, a veteran pornstar on one side while living the usual family life on the other. Her long term partner Rich manages her social media, while her oldest kid knows what she does for a job. This is first seen with a boy in her school making fun of her for what her mother does.

She meets newcomer to the industry Amy, who’s a 19 year old dancer who’s injured her leg and is hoping to make some quick easy money. Amy tells Jolene how she admires her, and she takes her under her wing. But as you’d expect, things don’t turn out to be that simple.

Jolene is known and liked by everyone, including porn director Dave who’s played by Phil Daniels.

The first episode ends pretty dark. I won’t do any spoilers here, you’ve just got to watch it.

I’ve only seen one episode so far, but I already like it. It reminds me of Secret Diary Of A Call Girl, with Billie Piper. Billie played Belle/Hannah, who was liked by everyone, and took a girl under her wing (Bambi) in the 2nd and 3rd series. This is a similar character Jolene in Adult Material.

Adult Material is on Monday night’s at 10PM on Channel 4. If you can’t wait, every episode is on 4OD if you prefer to binge watch.
