Created by Roland Moore, LAND GIRLS follows the lives and loves of four girls away from home, doing their bit for Britain in the Women's Land Army (WLA). As they adapt to their new surroundings, and knuckle down to some hard work and play, they realize very quickly that their lives will never be the same again.
Actors include Nathaniel Parker ("The Inspector Lynley Mysteries," "Bleak House"), Christine Bottomley ("Hope Springs," "Massive," "Early Doors"), Sophie Ward ("Holby City"), Summer Strallen ("Hollyoaks"), Mark Benton ("The Street"), Danny Webb ("Our Friends In The North"), Jo Woodcock ("Tess Of The D'Urbervilles," "All The Small Things") and Becci Gemmell.
Against the backdrop of war-weary Forties Britain, LAND GIRLS is set on the Hoxley estate, as the girls balance their working lives at the run-down Pasture Farm, and the opulent Hoxley Manor. Nancy, Joyce, Bea, and Annie have all joined the WLA for very different reasons, but they all have one common goal, to serve their country and help win the war. The drama follows the women as they try to live out their lives in very challenging circumstances, with lots of laughter and tears along the way.
In the final episode of series one, Annie decides to visit Cedric in the hospital — knowing she must choose between the two men in her life. Will she choose to follow duty or love? Bea and Clarence get ready for their impromptu wedding. But Clarence has cold feet.
Lady Hoxley takes revenge on Nancy for the affair she is having with Lord Hoxley. Annie finds herself on a journey into hell when Tucker finally flips over the edge of sanity. Will she escape with her life?
Up Next: Series two of LAND GIRLS will begin airing at 9 p.m. on Thursday, August 9, 2012 on KPBS TV.
