Set against in 18th century Georgian London, Harlots is a family drama offering a new take on the city's most valuable commercial activity: sex. Based on the stories of real women, the series follows Margaret Wells and her daughters as she struggles to reconcile her roles as mother and brothel owner. When her business comes under attack from Lydia Quigley, a rival madam with a ruthless streak, Margaret will fight back, even if it means putting her family at risk. Brown Findlay will star as Charlotte, Margaret's eldest daughter and the city's most coveted courtesan who begins to grapple with her position in both society and her immediate family.
London 1763, the capital of the world, the most cosmopolitan place on Earth. One in five women in London is making her living selling sex. In some areas brothels, run by indomitable Madams, are to be found on almost every street.
Margaret Wells' brothel is in a down-trodden area of the capital, but she's making her move upwards, aiming to move her family and her girls and take a new house in the vibrant new area of Soho. Margaret is determined to take her piece of the wealth of this great city. She is hungry for success – even when her ambition begins to threaten everything she cares for.
But Lydia Quigley - owner of one of the most fashionable, successful, and unhappy brothels in Soho - has other ideas. When Margaret's brothel is raided, Margaret realises her ambition has roused an enemy, and stirred up an old feud.
As they risk losing everything, how much will Margaret and her daughters have to sacrifice to keep the brothel, and the Wells family afloat?
