VAN NUYS, Calif.—Digital Playground has signed Kayden Kross to an exclusive performance contract.

Kross will join the studio beginning in 2010. The company said the Sacramento native has remained a porn enigma within the industry, but Kross will redefine herself with Digital Playground.

In addition to hosting the AVN Awards Show on Jan. 9 at the Palms Casino Resort during the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, Kross will sign at Digital Playground’s booth with her new contract sisters and attend the company's parties. 

Digital Playground’s founder Joone is proud to have Kross with the company. “Kayden is a truly unique personality,” he said “She is mysterious yet flirtatious, sexy yet reserved. There is a conundrum surrounding Kayden that draws people to her every more. Kayden will flourish with Digital Playground and really come into her own in front of the camera.”

Digital Playground, which has branded itself as a "filmmakers’ company," has produced best-selling movies such as Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge, Nurses and Teachers.

“Digital Playground provides a level of unrivaled creativity and beauty in their movies,” Kross said. “I am really excited for the opportunity to be a part of their original content and believe I can add another fresh, new dimension to the company.

“I want to be pushed to be the best I can be, and Digital Playground expects nothing less,” the 24-year-old continued. “I thrive under pressure, and I think Digital Playground will provide the direction and support that I'll need to get there.”

Fans anticipating Kross's first release under contract with Digital Playground should note her scene with Tommy Gunn in Digital Playground’s Deeper 9
