LOS ANGELES—The sex tape featuring reality TV star Farrah Abraham and AVN Male Performer of the Year James Deen—which evidently has been re-named Farrah 'Teen Mom' Superstar—begins airing on VividTV May 6.
“Farrah has generated a tremendous amount of media coverage this past month and Google searches on her are through the roof,” VividTV president Ken Boenish said. “This is exactly the kind of unique content that sets VividTV apart. Our services are centered on leveraging Vivid’s immense brand cachet to bring content to TV platforms that is exclusive and decidedly different.”
Boenish continued, “Our celebrity sex tapes, superhero parodies and other exclusive, award-winning movies are unmatched in the marketplace. As a result, TV platforms around the world are moving quickly to launch both our VividTV branded 24/7 linear TV channel as well as the VividTV OnDemand service. Our distribution has more than doubled in the last three months alone. We expect to see continued rapid expansion of our services in the US, Latin America, Europe and Canada for the balance of this year and into 2014.”
Vivid Entertainment co-chairman Bill Asher added, “We are extremely pleased with the progress of our television division. It is an important part of the company’s overall aggressive growth strategy.”
The announcement of the channel launch and acquisition of Farrah Superstar comes just weeks after the company revealed agreements for Vivid Cabaret gentlemen’s clubs in both Los Angeles and Manhattan.
“We feel that the time is right for expansion of the Vivid brand into a number of adult marketplaces, and television is definitely a cornerstone of that expansion,” Asher said.
