With a strong buzz from Sundance, Netflix has just acquired the rights to documentary Hot Girls Wanted.
Straight from the website for Hot Girls Wanted, the documentary is “A first-ever look at the realities of the professional “amateur” porn world and the steady stream of 18-to-19-year old girls entering into it”. Rashida Jones is attached as a producer, and Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus are the directors.
Bauer and Gradus are no strangers to thought-provoking documentaries on sexual content, as the duo also directed Sexy Baby (currently available for streaming). While Sexy Baby was more on the effects and pressures placed upon females in society through the digital age, Hot Girls Wanted is a direct look into the lives of those in the adult industry.
As quoted from Deadline.com, Jones stated that, “Netflix is the ideal partner for us; not only do they understand this film but they’re the perfect platform to reach the many people who need to see it. Netflix shares our passion for sharing a story that no one wants to talk about but that needs to be discussed”.
Although Netflix has a surprisingly large catalog of porn documentaries, the hype from Sundance and the name recognition behind the team of Hot Girls Wanted, should allow the documentary to achieve its goal of reaching a major audience.
