Canada: Documentary exposes Naked News
« on: October 05, 2012, 12:19:17 pm »
Naked News is getting even more exposed.
Super Channel says it’s pre-licensed the eight-episode documentary series Naked News Uncovered from Toronto-based AllScreen Entertainment.
The Canadian pay-TV channel says the series will “tell the behind-the-scenes stories of the strangest news organization in the world. “
Super Channel plans to begin filming the project this month and air it in summer 2013.
The Toronto-produced Naked News, which began in 1999, has a subscription website and daily TV newscast in which female anchors strip down while delivering the day’s headlines.
Super Channel says the documentary series will chronicle the Naked News team’s “ups and downs as they strive for greater acceptance and success in the mainstream media.”
“At Naked News, we found a quirky subculture of memorable characters that will make for a fascinating doc,” Barri Cohen, co-creator and producer of Naked News Uncovered, said in a statement.
“It’s like a real life version of The Office crossed with the original Newsroom...but of course with naked anchorwomen.”
Naked News Uncovered is created and executive produced by Allan Novak and Barri Cohen of AllScreen Entertainment.

I have mixed emotions about this.   I like the idea of more people seeing something like this and understanding there is nothing wrong with nudity.    I also wonder though if this is another case of equating nudity with sex and as we all know sex sells. :345

That's the same way I feel. The whole strip-show thing seems like more of a sex sells bit, but once the clothes are all the way off (as we all know) the sexual aspect drops. Mixed feelings for sure.

The "strip" part is not sensual at all.

Beside, what's the problem with selling sex?

I used to watch this when it was free like 10 years ago - totally forgot about them.
Go Canada! And as I've said many times I Love T.O.!

Not sure about this in a Naturist context, seems a bit off

Not everything needs to be about nudism, we don't own nudity.

That's why I qualified it with the words 'Naturist context"

I've never really formed a solid decision on Naked News. I mean, they aren't doing anything sexual, but it does seem like they are using nudity for ratings and attention.

In the least, they should get some male anchors on there. Imo, all this is is sex sells, and it gives the rest of us a bad wrap to some degree because people say "Look, throwing nudity out there really is just a sell-sex catch phrase."

I don't see the problem.

They do.

I strongly disagree with this. The more nudity there is, the more people think about it and realize its no big deal.
