Netflix has acquired exclusive worldwide rights to “Hot Girls Wanted,” a documentary film produced by Rashida Jones about the world of professional “amateur” porn.
Premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, the film will be available across all Netflix territories in 2015, though no specific date has been set yet. At Sundance, it competed in the US Documentary Competition.
“Hot Girls Wanted” is directed by Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus, and produced by Bauer, Gradus, Jones, and Brittany Huckabee (who also served as writer/editor). It’s also backed by two Kinsey Institute researchers, according to Netflix.
“Jill and Ronna have exposed a shocking world of hope and heartbreak,” said Erik Barmack, Netflix’s VP of global independent content, in a statement. “The filmmakers gained unprecedented access into a world never documented until now, and we are proud to bring their unflinching work to a global audience.”
Bauer and Gradus’ debut documentary feature, “Sexy Baby,” is also streaming on Netflix.
