Certified Fresh with 100% on Rotten Tomatoes
“The show understands the dreams and challenges of its captivating characters the way an exotic dancer knows the physics of her own body. And when it takes the stage and gets in the zone, it positively flies.” – The New York Times
“P-Valley is an unadulterated, unfiltered work that pours light into a specific slice of the Black experience – one that, from the outset, may not seem particularly artful or elegant – and turns it into an achingly beautiful song.” – TV Guide

We know Katori has a lot of incredible stories to tell and a lot in store for these women in a second season.”

About P-Valley TV Show
"P-Valley" project takes an unapologetic look at the lives of strip club dancers working down in the Dirty Delta, while "Hightown" touches on the current opioid epidemic sweeping the U.S.

Down deep in the Mississippi Delta lies an oasis of grit and glitter in a rough patch of human existence where beauty can be hard to find. This southern-fried, hour-long drama tells the kaleidoscopic story of a little-strip-club-that-could and the big characters who come through its doors - the hopeful, the lost, the broken, the ballers, the beautiful, and the damned. Trap music meets film noir in this lyrical and atmospheric series that dares to ask what happens when small-town folk dream beyond the boundaries of the Piggly Wiggly and the pawnshop.Keep track of the cancel/renew status of all your favorite TV shows.
