EPISODE ONE (1/21/17)

SUMMARY: In Chicago's early 1900s red light district, two notorious sisters, May O'Hara and Lydia Summerlin, run The Summerlin Club, the most elegant and exclusive brothel in North America. However, this being Chicago, their exclusive nature does not absolve them from paying protection money to local politicians. Later, Lydia is incensed when May arranges a sit-down with "Lady Belladona" - aka Maven Gillespie, the Madam of a far more disreputable brothel, and who wants to see the Summerlin Club brought down. Meanwhile, Pastor Albert Pitt whips up a crowd in a frenzy against both suffragettes and prostitutes especially the Summerlin Club and a street fight breaks out.
