Brief Encounters

Take four women all struggling to find happiness and fulfilment, add a touch of glamour, gutsy humour and a desire to improve their lot in life and Brief Encounters is born.

Set in the early ‘80s, the six-part series introduces Steph, Pauline, Nita and Dawn as unlikely entrepreneurs who begin to sell exotic lingerie - to the dismay (and often delight) of their loved ones.

The series is inspired by chapters telling the story of the early days of the Ann Summers party plan business found in Good Vibrations, Jacqueline Gold's memoir.
