Demi Moore to star in and produce QCode's new scripted dramatic podcast, Dirty Diana


Podcast and media studio QCODE announced today that Golden Globe-nominated actress Demi Moore will star in and produce QCODE’s new scripted dramatic podcast, Dirty Diana. Dirty Diana was created by writer and director Shana Feste (Country Strong, Run Sweetheart Run) and written by Feste and Jennifer Besser.

Premiering Monday, July 13th, the six-episode series tells the story of a dying marriage and how two partners find their way back each other through perseverance, connection, and sex. For those craving a new form of erotica, the podcast portrays sex and longing from a female gaze, with female pleasure at its center.

“We are so excited to help bring Shana Feste’s riveting and titillating story to life alongside Demi Moore,” said QCODE. “Dirty Diana brings the fresh perspective of sex through an all-female lens with characters you are truly invested in.”

Demi Moore stars alongside Claes Bang, Betsy Brandt, Mackenzie Davis, Carmen Ejogo, Max Greenfield, Dayo Okeniyi, Penelope Ann Miller, John Tenney, Rhys Wakefield and Dolly Wells, with cameos from Gwendoline Christie, Chris Diamontopolus, Lena Dunham, Melanie Griffith, Ava Grey, Andrea Riseborough, Rosa Salazar, Lili Taylor and Lesley Ann Warren. Moore will serve as an executive producer, along with Qcode’s Rob Herting and Automatik’s Brian Kavanaugh-Jones & Fred Berger, Shana Feste and Jennifer Besser through their Quiet Girl Productions.

Demi Moore is repped by CAA, Untitled Entertainment, and Gang, Tyre, Ramer, Brown & Passman. Claes Bang is repped by UTA and Sharky & Co. in the UK. Shana Feste is repped by CAA and Marks Law Group.
