(Toronto/Las Vegas – February 3, 2015) – A Super Channel original production from Toronto’s All Screen Entertainment, Naked News – Uncovered, goes live today in the USA on hulu. After premiering on direct to fan sites, VHX and Vimeo, All Screen Entertainment partnered with Syndicado to release Naked News Uncovered initially on Google TV, Microsoft, and vudu, and now on hulu.
The world’s first and only all-nude news show, Naked News burst onto the world scene in 1999 and immediately garnered massive media attention. Produced in Toronto, it’s a subscription website and daily TV newscast featuring attractive female anchors who blithely shed al their clothes while delivering the news. It’s funny, sexy and often surreal. But make no mistake, it is real!
“The Naked News Uncovered is perfect for hulu, the major online platform for streaming TV shows. They’re both edgy and draw a younger totally connected audience.” said Greg Rubidge, President of Syndicado. “We’ve had tremendous success launching Canadian produced TV shows for first and second window launches on hulu in the US, generating evergreen revenue and new audiences for these series. “
“What we found at Naked News was a fascinating family of oddballs, misfits and larger-than-life characters,” says series co-creator and co-director Allan Novak. “The events that transpired over the six months of filming are both jaw-droppingly bizarre and unbelievably funny. Launching the show on the US on hulu, the US’s top TV streaming site, is a huge win for the series and will allow to build the audience for the show to support our other international sales efforts.
