Vivid Announces Tera Patrick Signing

Today Vivid Entertainment Group issued their official statement announcing their deal with Tera Patrick.

Tera Vision, the adult production company owned by Tera Patrick, has signed an exclusive two-year contract with Vivid Entertainment Group. Under terms of the deal, Patrick will star in at least three projects for Vivid, beginning in the first quarter of 2004, and she will become a Vivid Girl.

“Tera is a woman of remarkable style and grace,” said Vivid co-founder and partner Steven Hirsch, “She is the hottest adult actress who is not already a Vivid Girl and I believe that by joining us she rounds out a group that is the best in the history of the company.”

Patrick, who began her career in adult video in 1999, has won numerous honors for her adult film work including the AVN Award for Best New Starlet in 2000 and the Hot d' Or Award for "The Best New American Starlet" at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival.

She has also hosted the popular Nightcalls 411program for Playboy Television and has been on dozens of mainstream entertainment shows.

She will also be seen in an upcoming reality TV show tentatively titled Vivid World, which is being produced by World of Wonder. The program will be broadcast in 2004, first in the U.K. on British Sky Broadcasting and Channel Four, with plans on bringing to the United States afterwards.

Patrick began acting in adult movies because "it turned me on to think I would be having sex and a lot of men would be watching me. I like a man who is aggressive. I am very submissive when it comes to satisfying men's desires. I like a guy who knows how to have really hard sex, but then knows how to make love also."

Patrick was previously signed to Digital Playground, who still retains the right to maintain and will continue to market its exclusive "Tera Patrick Virtual Sex” line of novelties with California Exotic Novelties.
