Bomb Girls is a Canadian television drama that debuted on 04 January 2012.
The plot profiles the stories of four women working in a Canadian munitions factory during World War II, beginning in 1941.
Originally intended to be a six-part drama mini-series, two seasons have aired.
A propaganda newsreel is being filmed at Victory Munitions, and to her chagrin, Betty is chosen to be the spokesmodel for the factory. When the newsreel portrays her as a housewife with children, Betty is upset and angry with the director; she later confesses to Kate that she wishes she could be “that girl” in the film. After a slow start, Vera and Archie befriend each other in the hospital, and he attempts to talk her out of committing suicide. Meanwhile, Marco and Lorna consummate their affair, while Gladys, depressed about her fiancé’s affair, looks for ways to act out.
