Former pop singer and actress best known for playing Rose in Doctor Who, Billie Piper, has been confirmed as the lead in a new TV series to be filmed in the UK “Belle de Jour” based on the book “Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl” which itself was adopted from the blog Belle de Jour, a “chronicle of the exploits of a high classed prostitute in London”.
All Head Lines said that the series is still at the early stages of development, and will show on Channel 4 in the UK.
Sky News reported that the series will be about “a sexy London prostitute who makes a fortune by describing her sexual acts on the internet”. Yep, the fortune came via the blog.
As far as I’m aware, this will be the first time a blog to riches tale will be made into a TV series, although there has to be some irony in the fact that the story centers around a prostitute.
