LOS ANGELES — TV and Internet broadcast company X3Sixty has acquired three Vivid reality series to be streamed online.
The series followed the lives of Vivid Girls and Vivid Entertainment, two of which debuted today.
Two of the shows were originally broadcast on Showtime in the U.S., the company noted.
“We’re excited to present these extremely sexy and entertaining shows to a new audience of viewers,” Paul Fishbein, President of X3Sixty, said. “All three of these series are different and provide viewers with incredible insight into how the adult industry works. And some of the biggest stars of the last decade are profiled within the shows.”
The first series, “Vivid Valley,” is a 13-episode series, produced by World of Wonder that was broadcast in Europe in 2005 and had a successful run on Playboy TV later that year. The series concentrated on the real lives of then Vivid Girls Jenna Jameson, Savanna Samson, Briana Banks, Mercedez, Tawny Roberts and others. Vivid CEO Steven Hirsch, Paul Thomas and ChiChiLaRue were among the other industry personnel featured.
"We felt that these three shows broke new ground in revealing some of the personalities in the industry and the dynamics of how adult movies are produced,” Marci Hirsch, Vivid’s vice president of production, said. “We had a great time shooting the shows and we know that they got high ratings so we're delighted that X3Sixty will be making them available to anyone who missed them or who wants to see them again."
The first two episodes of "Vivid Valley" are streaming starting today, with two new episodes debuting each month.
Following that, “Debbie Does Dallas Again,” a five episode reality series from 2007 will premiere, which followed the making of Vivid’s update of the classic “Debbie Does Dallas.” Also produced by World of Wonder, this series debuted on Showtime, and featured both Steven and Marci Hirsch, as well as Vivid girls Monique Alexander, Steffani Morgan and Sunny Leone. In addition, director Paul Tomas, and actors Dana Dearmond, Lacey Heart, Derrick Pierce, Charlotte Stokely, amongst many others, were featured.
The third series, “Deeper Throat,” also produced by World of Wonder for Showtime, will debut next year. The 2009 series featured Vivid’s Hirsch and his quest to acquire “Deep Throat” from Arrow honcho Ray Pistol, for re-make rights. The six-episode reality series also starred Sasha Grey, Paul Thomas, Meggan Mallone, Hanna Hilton, Shylar Cobi, Sarah Vandella and more.
