Plot Synopsis

These women work in munitions factories during World War II, building the arms that keep their overseas husbands, lovers, brothers and sons alive and fighting, while they struggle for their own freedoms. While they're building bombs, women also find themselves flourishing with new found freedom, discovering strengths they never before imagined. At the same time they're often woefully under-equipped for the new challenges they face. Amid propaganda and sexual harassment, crossing social and cultural boundaries, these remarkable women form a sisterhood never experienced before. This fictional drama delves into the lives of these exceptional women: fiery rich girl Gladys, who is looking to escape her crushing social expectations; gentle, honey-voiced Kate, who lands on a raft of secrets; tough-talking Betty, who's finally found a place where she belongs; and the gritty matron Lorna, whose heart blossoms through the power of work and unforeseen romance. The women form an unexpected kinship, while contending with the fathers, brothers, coworkers and suitors who are also facing various struggles (and advantages) of staying home. ReelzChannel aired the U.S. premiere of this series on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at 10pm ET. After BOMB GIRLS had its Season 2 world premiere on Global TV on January 2, 2013, ReelzChannel presented the show's second season U.S. premiere on Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 8pm ET, showing back-to-back episodes, following a Season 1 marathon from 11am-5:30pm ET earlier the same day. Season 2 picks up a few months after the end of the first season, starting with February 1942 and covering the subsequent nine months of World War II, when the Allies weren't doing very well.
On Monday, May 26, 2014 at 9pm ET/6pm PT, ReelChannel aired the U.S. premiere of BOMB GIRLS: FACING THE ENEMY, a two-hour original movie that had its world premiere on Global TV two months earlier on March 27, 2014. This made-for-TV movie takes place in the Spring of 1943 as the Battle for the Atlantic rages and an Axis victory seems inevitable. German U-boats patrol the ocean picking off ships, destroying much needed supplies and inflicting heavy casualties. The one hope the Allies have -- production of newly developed sonar equipment -- is moved to Victory Munitions when the British factories are bombed, and it's the duty of the women at the factory to band together and fight for their country. Under constant pressure to turn out more bombs, as well as work on a new secret sonar line, the women of Victory Munitions band together in a tight bond of support and friendship. But when a disturbing menace appears in the form of a saboteur among the factory workers, Gladys is covertly recruited by Allied Intelligence to find the traitor, forcing her to spy on her best friends, co-workers and fellow agents and call into question everyone and everything she trusts.
