A Spring Break at L’Abeille Nue is the 8th Rags to Riches

The story starts with the trials and tribulations of twin sisters Jeni and Karin, who are part of the up and coming young band, Five Point.
The downside of this rising fame is the interest of the tabloid papers and web sites. The paparazzi are after them and the girls need a holiday.
Elodie, their manager, suggests a break in a place where nobody takes pictures. L’Abeille Nue. The resort run by her cousin and her cousin’s husband, Bea and Rags – the Uncovered Policeman.
Just one minor point Elodie omits to tell the girls … L’Abeille Nue is a naturist resort.

An email from an old friend piques the interest of Rags the Uncovered Policeman (retired).

Hi Rags,
I have had a visit from an old neighbour of mine and Gill’s, from back in the day. A guy called Ian Francis. He works in the TV industry, something to do with making light entertainment programmes. He is looking for a venue to make a drama programme. He visited us but after we had talked it through we decided that we couldn’t offer consistent enough weather for making a drama over several weeks.
Consequently, I suggested your place in early spring might be better. He said he would get in touch. It all seems really genuine, unlike some of the documentary programs we get asked to participate in. Give him a listen.

Rags’ place?
The popular holiday destination, L’Abeille Nue. A naturist resort in the French countryside between the historic cities of Carcassonne and Narbonne.
