Get a look inside the French porn industry when Walter Presents: The Money Shot arrives on Channel 4 next week.
The Valadines are like most families except for one very tiny detail: the family business is porn. This bold series presents the reality of the erotic film industry alongside an uncensored family saga. Elegant, intellectual and mind-blowingly explicit, the Money Shot is a world where filth meets philosophy and every preconception you have ever had about the French attitude to sex is met and exceeded.
For over 40 years at Xanadu, porn filmmaking and family life have peacefully co-existed together under the same roof. The business thrived under the authority of Alex Valadine, the flamboyant patriarch and the high priest of the French X-rated film industry.
Yet, decades later Alex refuses to acknowledge that the erotic film industry is now virtually unrecognisable and now the company is struggling to keep up with the digital world. In order to save the business from bankruptcy his children need to step in and take control, but will they be able to overcome fraught relations and past predicaments?
The Money Shot is created by Yves Ramonet and stars Jean-Baptiste Malartre, Julien Boisselier and Nathalie Blanc. The 8-part series offers a wry commentary on the modern porn industry.
Don’t miss Walter Presents: The Money Shot when it premieres on Channel 4 on 20th November at midnight, with the entire series immediately available to view FREE on demand on All 4.
