Left a sex store by her recently deceased uncle, asexual Zora teams up to run it with her also asexual best friend Ember. Problem is, it’s a money laundering front for the mob.
SEX SHOP is a 1⁄2 hour dark comedy TV pilot exploring topics including romantic and sexual orientation, mental health, and family and friend relationships. The show follows this team of four of the most unlikely sex shop owners as they simultaneously navigate their own personal challenges and their new lives working as a mob front.
The show's core ensemble started with the question: Who would be the wors possible people torun a sex shop? And that would be ZORA (identifies as sex-repulsed asexual), EMBER (asexual/aromantic with sexual OCD), ADAM (Ember’s pan older brother and recovering sex-addict), and JOY (the repressed, late middle-aged widow of the old mob boss).
