WE tv orders reality series 'Sex Box'

Sex-Box

The reality dating show arena just became a bit more crowded: WE tv has ordered nine, one-hour episodes of Sex Box, based on the U.K. show of the same name. In this therapy-based series, couples go into a camera-free, soundproof box to have sex, then emerge postcoitus to discuss their problems with a panel of experts.

“Sex Box is one of the most unique and compelling show concepts we’ve ever seen, and we can’t wait to bring it to WE tv,” said Marc Juris, the network’s president. “Our featured couples will get a once-in-a-lifetime experience, while our viewers will get the kind of bold, break-through-the-clutter programming they increasingly associate with WE tv.”

Sex Box is slated to premiere in the U.S. in early 2015.

Seth Meyers on hosting the Emmys: 'We're going to try to bring a little New York to L.A.'

Seth Meyers usually plays host to a TV star or two each night on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers. But on Monday, he’ll play host to hundreds of them—and all of tube-obsessed America—as he emcees the small screen’s biggest night: The Emmys, which air on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

On a scale of one to 10, how pants-wetting nervous will Meyers be when he walks out on stage at the Nokia Theatre? “Oh, I think I‘ll be high 9s. But I’m happy it’s the same physical space as the ESPYs,” says Meyers, who hosted the sports awards show in 2011. “For me, the most nerve-racking is the first time in a space. It’s a different audience and a different set, but at least down in the caverns of the building, the hallways are the same. And I know where the bathroom is, so that’s good.”

EW spoke with the former SNL head writer and Weekend Update anchor about what to expect when he goes live from L.A. on Emmy night. (Fans of Game of Thrones and other quality shows: Catch up on unwatched episodes before tuning in. Or reading on.) READ FULL STORY

'Dating Naked' cast member sues after VH1 showed her naked

dating-naked

A woman who went on Dating Naked has filed a $10 million lawsuit after VH1 showed apparently her too naked.

New York model Jessie Nizewitz, 28, says the headline-making freshman reality series flashed her crotch during one segment where she playfully wrestles with a date on the beach. Viewers noticed the reveal despite it being a very brief shot, and Nizewitz says she endured jokes on social media at her expense. Producers had allegedly assured Nizewitz that her genitals would be fully blurred during the episode. (Dating Naked typically shows bare buttocks, but cast breasts and genitals are heavily blurred.)
