The Strip

Television, 2002–2003

The Strip centres on Melissa Walker (Interrogation's Luanne Gordon), who sheds a legal career to set up a male strip revue. The award-winning show allowed audiences to ogle semi-naked men (warmed up by hit play Ladies Night and 1997 film The Full Monty) while focusing on a female character, as Melissa juggles business, romance, friendship and raising a teenage daughter. Taking cues from Ally McBeal (with fantasy sequences to match), the Gibson Group show ran on TV3 for two seasons of 20 episodes each. It also sold internationally.
