X3Sixty Acquires 3 Vivid Reality Series for Broadcast

LOS ANGELES—Television and internet broadcast network X3Sixty has acquired three reality series, two of which were broadcast on Showtime in the United States, delving into the world of Vivid Entertainment and its Vivid Girls.

The three series—Vivid Valley, Debbie Does Dallas Again and Deeper Throat—will stream on X3Sixty’s InsideAdult.com website and through the company’s affiliates.

“We’re excited to present these extremely sexy and entertaining shows to a new audience of viewers,” X3Sixty president Paul Fishbein 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.”

Vivid Valley, a 13-episode series produced by World of Wonder, was broadcast in Europe in 2005 and had a successful run on Playboy TV later that year. It concentrates on the real lives of then Vivid Girls Jenna Jameson, Savanna Samson, Briana Banks, Mercedez, Tawny Roberts and others. Vivid CEO Steven Hirsch and directors Paul Thomas and Chi Chi LaRue were among the other industry figures 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,” Vivid vice president of production Marci Hirsch 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 begin streaming today here, with two new episodes debuting each month.

Following that, InsideAdult.com will debut Debbie Does Dallas Again, the five episode reality series from 2007 that 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, Stefani Morgan and Sunny Leone. In addition, Paul Tomas and actors Dana DeArmond, Lacie Heart, Derrick Pierce and Charlotte Stokely, amongst many others, were featured.

The third series, Deeper Throat, produced as well by World of Wonder for Showtime, will debut next year. The 2009 series featured Vivid boss Steven Hirsch and his quest to acquire Deep Throat from Arrow honcho Ray Pistol for re-make rights. The six-episode series also starred Sasha Grey, Paul Thomas, Meggan Mallone, Hanna Hilton, Shylar Cobi, Sarah Vandella and many more.
