Ended Thursday / 7:00pm HDNet US 30 min.
Sharp, no-nonsense, acerbic, loving and generous, Svetlana is a woman of indeterminate age (between 30 and 50, she'll never tell) who landed in Minnesota from the USSR years ago as a mail-order bride. She quickly left her humdrum life and milquetoast husband, Steve, for a life of edge and passion on the streets of Los Angeles -- pursuing her version of the American dream -- opening a brothel that caters to high end clients. And with that was born "St Petersburg House of Discreet Pleasure."
