TORONTO—A new docu-series is coming to Canada that spotlights the private life of one of the biggest stars in adult entertainment, Jessica Drake. Love, Jessica will premiere on The Movie Network on Sunday, May 11 at 11:00 pm EST, and will appear on Movie Central in fall 2014.
Drake is not the stereotypical porn star, but a devoted businesswoman and activist whose personality is even more attractive than her sex appeal would indicate. In Drake’s own words, “I’m just like anyone else; we all have sex…I just do it on camera.”
Under contract with Wicked Pictures, where she performs, writes and directs, one side of Drake is a caring, thoughtful, charitable person, while the other is a highly successful porn star. Often though, the stigma of being in porn gets in the way of helping others, something Drake wants to change. Through education, open discourse, and her genuine, good-hearted nature, she works to shift the stereotypes attached to her and others. Her work does not define her; rather, she defines her work.
Drake also works closely with her significant other, Toronto-born Brad Armstrong, who directs and performs for Wicked Pictures. While Drake works to have the means to fulfill her charitable side, Armstrong works to fulfill his material side. Together, they work hard to live a life that some dream of but others loathe.
Season one of Love, Jessica is comprised of ten 30-minute episodes. The show comes from the creators of The Right Hand at EWL Media. The team includes executive producer Richard Arnold, producer Lynnette Lanning and director Kai Soremekun.
“Jessica Drake is a kind, strong person who is also professional and business savvy,” commented Arnold. “She and her partner Brad Armstrong are a power couple who challenge what people think of as typical adult performers.”
