*Santa Monica, Calif. – Starz, a Lionsgate company (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B), released today the official trailer and key art for its new original series “P-Valley.”
The series will premiere on Sunday, July 12th at 9:00 PM ET/PT, following the season finale of “Hightown,” then move to its regular timeslot at 8:00 PM ET/PT starting on Sunday, July 19th on STARZ in the U.S. and Canada and on STARZPLAY across Europe, Latin America and Japan.
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.
