'Naked News' to Become Steamy Canadian Docu-Soap
TORONTO - Canadian TV is gearing up for a stripped down docu-soap.
Indie producer AllScreen Entertainment has pacted with the Naked News service to create a unscripted series about real-life female TV anchors who disrobe while delivering the news.
The proposed show, The Naked Truth: The Naked News Uncovered, is being shopped at the Realscreen Summit in Washington, D.C.
Naked News first launched in Toronto in 1999 with women stripping on air as they presented the news.
The nude news service, produced in Toronto, is currently available internationally via pay-per-view TV, or on the Nakednews.com website.
“It’s a quirky, one-of-a-kind workplace that is the ultimate setting for a funny, sexy and probably surreal series,” AllScreen co-founder Allan Novak said Sunday.
