Blake Riley Extends Channel 1 Contract

LOS ANGELES — Performer Blake Riley has extended his exclusive contract with gay adult production and distribution house Channel 1 Releasing.

He was discovered on MySpace by directrix and Channel 1 principal Chi Chi LaRue, and promptly cast in his first film, "Knob Bobbin'," in 2006.

He went on to anchor such titles as "Link: The Evolution," "Bottom of the 9th: Little Big League 3" and "Restless Youths." Riley recently made headlines when it was announced he'd lost his virginity to a woman — onscreen — in the bisex blue movie "Shifting Gears: A Bisexual Transmission."

Riley has since become a prominent public face (and body) of the studio. For the company's line of branded novelties, Topco Sales modeled the CyberSkin Vibrating Ass on Riley's hindquarters.

Fellow Channel 1 exclusives include Jeremy Bilding, Benjamin Bradley, Johnny Hazzard, Cameron Marshall, Josh Vaughn and Vance Winter.

"Blake is one of the best and most unique performers in this industry. I've been in this business for over 20 years and have yet to meet someone as down to earth, professional and versatile as him," said LaRue.

"He's such a joy to work with," LaRue added. "I just love to see how much the fans adore him. I call him a superstar for a reason."

Riley recently completed his 14th film, "Tread Heavy." He will next appear onscreen in "Blake Riley's Fuckin’ Around."

Riley is a current XBIZ Awards nominee as GLBT Performer of the Year, and his film "Unknown: Ghost of a Chance" was nommed as GLBT Film of the Year. Channel 1 Releasing is among those cited as GLBT Studio of the Year.
