BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Director Otto Bauer has taken the reins of the Hustler Video series Hustler XXX.

The long-running Pierre Woodman line had been on hiatus for two years following a previous attempt to revive the series with director Axel Braun. Hustler is now resurrecting the 'XXX' brand at the request of Larry Flynt.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to have the opportunity to direct Hustler’s XXX series,” said Bauer. “I’ve been a fan of Pierre Woodman’s for quite some time, so I’m really excited to have the chance to convey my style in this series.”

Bauer wrapped his first volume of Hustler XXX this past weekend. Hustler Video creative director Drew Rosenfeld is pleased with the results.

“The downtown L.A. set was perfect—from the girls he chose, the makeup, outfits, lighting, set design—no detail was overlooked," said Rosenfeld. "He demonstrates a great deal of talent and experience while on set. Otto will redefine the XXX series. More than just exotic locations, Otto knows how to bring the best talent to the screen, offering every nasty trick in the book. We know the fans will love it and come back for more!”

Hustler XXX 30 stars Audrey Hollander, Britney Stevens, Kissy Kapri, Evie Delatosso, Annette Schwarz and Nika Noire.
