Louis Theroux re-visits pornstars and drug addicts this week on LIFE ON THE EDGE

Advertisement

Louis explores how America has managed to take our darkest desires, commodify them and turn them into a saleable product.

From his memorable Weird Weekends episodes on porn and rap to films about Las Vegas and the US opioid crisis, this episode explores a very human tendency to jump to the dark side when seeking out pleasure – whether through indulgence, risk-taking or the joy of doing something seen as ‘bad’ or ‘wrong’.

Louis re-connects with porn-star JJ, who over 20 years ago was just making his way in the adult industry but has since turned his back on that world in favour of a new life in eastern Europe.

And Louis catches up once more with Katilia from Heroin Town, whom he last saw hopelessly addicted to drugs, with little sign of turning her life around.

Louis Theroux: Life on the Edge – Episode 2 airs Sunday 10 January at 8.30pm on ABC TV PLUS and iview
