Fox Reality plans porn star show

The Fox Reality Channel will this fall air a three-hour, three-episode series that follows four porn stars as they learn to act.

My Bare Lady “will follow a group of U.S. porn stars as they travel to London and attempt to carve out acting careers on the West End stage,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. We’ll see “[t]heir experiences undergoing a crash course in acting and appearing before a discerning British audience,” Reuters reports.

The paper notes that the show is being co-produced with a British production company using a financial model never before used with reality TV that “will give both companies a chance to air an ambitious, high-production-value show for less than it would cost to make in the U.S.”
