Storyline

Playing For Keeps explores the world of Aussie Rules football from the perspective of the real power players: the women. From the grandstands and the locker rooms to the red carpets and the bedrooms, what makes the wives and girlfriends of football's elite tick? Infatuation, love, power or relevance? This bold, brassy and dangerous drama series depicts the lives of Aussie Rules football's rich and famous - and proves that when the cream of the crop fly high, they sometimes feel the heat.

LOST ME WITH THE GRAPHIC SEX SCEEN
18 October 2019 | by lawton37See all my reviews

Had potential for a quality show. But has lost me with the latest graphic sex scene. Why do producers have to rely on graphic sex to attract an audience? Looking forward to more family friendly entertainment. Without the graphic sex it could have been worth watching. Offends some of us with graphic sex scenes. I try to support Australian made,, but this makes it impossible. Take note of The Good Doctor success without offensive sex scenes.
