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.”

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
