If you thought Naked and Afraid was too hot for TV, how about couples having sex in a box? That’s right — a box! WEtv has ordered a one-hour pilot of Sex Box, an adaption of the hit U.K. show of the same name.
The series is pretty much what its name suggests: It invites real couples having relationship problems to enter a soundproof box to have sex. Immediately after, they address their issues with a panel of experts. According to the cable net’s description, “This ‘in the moment’ approach fosters conversations about intimacy that are completely filterless and emotionally honest.”
“Sex Box is an intriguing and original concept from a top production partner and we’re very excited about its potential, which has already been clearly demonstrated overseas — where it’s a hit,” said WE tv President Marc Juris.
WEtv confirmed that Grammy Award-winning singer Toni Braxton has signed up for a docusoap series. And just as Braxton transforms herself into a reality star, the network announced Tuesday that it will undergo a makeover as well: WEtv now has a new logo and marketing tagline.
Braxton Family Values looks at the relationship between the singer/songwriter, her mom, and her four sisters — all aspiring singers themselves.
The network also announced Staten Island Cakes, which gets into the burgeoning pastry-reality genre. Cakes follows Vinny Buzzetta, a 21-year-old “self-made pastry prodigy and sought-after cake maker” and his “loud, outspoken Staten Island family.” Sounds subtle!
