What’s the best way of making friends when you’re new to an area?

“There’s always zumba,” thinks Carrie. And so she enrols in the village dance class where she meets Odette. But it’s not long before their manic teacher, Zandra Zumba, has them gasping for breath. Fearing imminent collapse the new friends wonder what they could try instead. The answer appears in a poster at the local pub for a burlesque dance class. “Release Your Inner Goddess” it announces. Little Hatten has never seen anything so risqué. Carrie can’t wait to try on the nipple tassels but Odette isn’t quite so sure.

However before they have the chance to drape their feather boas round their necks, their lives take a seismic turn. Romantic dramas engulf their settled, small town world and set them off on an unexpected chain of events.

Join Carrie and Odette in the first episode of the “Bureau of Burlesque” series on their 30-something journey of love, sequins, men and mystery in this heart-warming tale of friendship, laughter, intrigue and feather boas.

The second episode of the series is due for release later in the year. Discover how the friends’ business, love lives and burlesque dancing reach new heights in summer 2014.
