(Toronto/Las Vegas – December 4, 2014) – A Super Channel original production from Toronto’s AllScreen Entertainment,Naked News Uncovered, will be going live on VOD in the US through Syndicado. After premiere launches on direct to fan sites, VHX and Vimeo, Syndicado will be releasing Naked News Uncovered December 9, 2014 on GooglePlay TV followed by a Spring launch on hulu.
Naked News is the world’s first and only all-nude news show, which burst onto the world scene in 1999 and immediately garnered massive media attention. Produced in Toronto, it continues as a subscription website and daily TV newscast which AllScreen media saw as the perfect combo for a new reality exposé docu-series.
“Who hasn’t heard of the Naked News?” said Greg Rubidge, President of Syndicado. “This kind of behind the scenes docu-series on a higher profile media property, while still tame enough for prime time, always takes off better on digital platforms, playing to younger audiences across multiple devices. The Naked News Uncovered was a hit with our key distribution partners and we’re delighted to work with AllScreen, growing the show’s exposure in the US on the major TV VOD outlets.”
“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. Having worked with Syndicado on my previous show, Loving Spoonfuls, where they grew the audience and revenue for the show on hulu, GooglePlay TV and Amazon, co-creator Barri Cohen and I thought they’d be a great fit for the Naked News Uncovered to take to the next step for us through VOD.”
Naked News Uncovered will be available for rent or purchase through GooglePlay TV starting December 9, 2014 and on hulu plus’ subscription service in April 2015.
