Continuing in the drama realm, Starz has picked up Pussy Valley from playwright Katori Hall. The series is "an unflinching and unapologetic look at the lives of pole dancers working down in the Dirty Delta." It follows five pole dancers working at the Pink Pony club in Mississippi who must prevent their real-life drama from interfering with their on-stage personas.

Starz will also branch into the world of telenovelas by adapting the Mexican soap opera Teresafor American audiences. The show focuses on an undocumented Latina who's trying to scrape her way into the world of the Los Angeles elite, chronicling her "ruthless pursuit of money and power and her willingness to do anything to get them." Carlos Portugal (Meet the Browns) will oversee the series.

It's not all serious stuff at Starz, however. The network has also added a half-hour comedy to its new slate of shows. Dirty Girls Social Club, based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Alisa Valdes, centers on six women living, working and loving in New York City. Ten years after going to college together, they realize all they can really count on is each other. Anne Thomopoulos (Rome) will executive-produce the series.
