Reality Central network will show “full-frontal nudity” but not “full-on sex.”
The new 24/7 reality TV cable network that will launch Jan. 15, 2004 will include “full frontal nudity” according to one of its founders. Reality Central, created by The Amazing Race 2‘s Blake Mycoskie and E! founder Larry Namer, will feature “full frontal nudity” which Namer tells Wired “is OK but full-on sex isn’t. We may explore racier content as pay-per-view specials.” He also says they are “speaking with ad agencies about reality advertising. For instance, students shooting commercials with their digital cameras that feature a specific product.”
+ also: report: TAR’s “Brennan wants to remind us all to write ‘I Want Reality Central!’ on our cable bills every month.”
