‘MONEY SHOT’ is an 8 x 1 hour dramedy TV series.
When a glamour photography studio is hit by the 90s Recession, a suburban photographer starts an underground porn studio to provide for her family.
It’s 1990 – Paul Keating has declared a recession on the country. Emily is an overworked mother of two, and wife of a deluded door-to-door salesmen. She runs a once–successful glamour photography studio in the suburbs of Melbourne, and it’s been a long time since Emily has been thought of as attractive.
BANG! – Emily’s old university flame, Andrew, now a world-famous celebrity photographer, returns to Melbourne and offers Emily a gig that will help keep her business afloat. Following a session with a particular frisky couple, Andrew inspires Emily to undertake a short-term plan to bring money in, by producing high-end erotic films privately for couples. Emily sees this as an opportunity to make housewives feel valued, but Andrew’s presence prods Em’s dormant sexual desires.
MONEY SHOT is the erotic version of ‘Weeds’ in a Nina-from-Offspring world.
LIGHTS, CAMERA… ATTRACTION.
