Season 2

Secret Diary of a Call Girl is a British television drama series created by Lucy Prebble, co-produced by Silverapples Media and Tiger Aspect Productions and starring Billie Piper as Belle, a high-class London-based call girl. The eponymous call girl is based on the blogs of Belle de Jour.

The series aired in the UK on ITV2 from 28 September, 2007 to 22 March, 2011. There are 32 half-hour episodes in four seasons.

Secret Diary of a Call Girl premiered in South Africa on M-Net on Sunday 8 February 2009, at 23h00. It later aired on DStv's M-Net HD channel and M-Net Series channel (Season 4 only). See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 2 aired on M-Net from 8-29 March, 2009, on Sundays at 23h00. New episodes broadcast in a double bill, weekly. There are eight episodes in the second season.

Synopsis

Taken from best-selling, real life blog diaries, this eye-opening insight into the life of a high-end call girl leading a double life became an immediate ratings winner in the United Kingdom.

Secret Diary of a Call Girl centres round the diary of the anonymous sex worker known only as Belle de Jour.

Belle introduces herself directly to camera (as she will throughout the series), explaining that she is a call-girl, working through an agent - partly for safety reasons but also because she does not come cheap.

Her real name is Hannah and her family believes that she is a legal secretary, which she told them as she imagined they would find it too boring to ask her about.

She explains the need to keep her two lives separate, even to the point that her apartment is split into two halves, depending on who she is for which visitor.

However, she does break the rules when entertaining a shy young man called Daniel, revealing her true name to give him encouragement.

The real Belle (whom Piper met and worked closely with pre-and during production) published her diaries in 2005 and, despite many attempts to discover her true identity, remained anonymous for years. In November 2009 she was revealed as Dr. Brooke Magnanti, a research scientist, blogger and writer.
