MONTREAL, March 8 /CNW Telbec/ - WEBDREAMS is back, and more revealing
than ever. The Gemini-nominated documentary series tackles new territory in
its second season, delving deeper into the high-stakes, high-profit world of
the online adult entertainment industry, exposing the reality behind the
glamour and the grit beneath the glitz. The half-hour Showcase Original series
produced by Galafilm premieres Friday, April 6 at 10:00 PM ET/PT.
"The cast of this season is a little more rock n' roll, a little more
hardcore, and living on the edge," says WEBDREAMS Series Director Joshua
Dorsey. "The success of Season One helped us get even more access to the
industry, and even deeper into the lives of our characters."
"The first season of WEBDREAMS has consistently appealed to Showcase
audiences," says Tara Ellis, Vice-President of Content for Showcase. "Now
Showcase.ca is offering viewers the opportunity to catch up with their
favourite characters as we stream the first season in advance of the
highly-anticipated launch of Season Two."
Tightly edited from over 800 hours of footage, the WEBDREAMS cameras
follow seven new characters - young men and women drawn to the adult
entertainment sector in a quest to find fame and fortune; dreamers who are
navigating the quick changes of an industry in flux.
There's the sultry web pioneer Angelique; Diesel, the hunky,
model-turned-entrepreneur now exploring the transsexual niche; Uncle D,
otherwise known as "The Canadian Assman"; Lance and Alexandra, the hardest
working couple in the industry; Violet, goddess of Goth style; and Vid
Vicious, an outrageous content provider working one of the most competitive
ends of the industry.
Season Two of WEBDREAMS is filmed in HD and broadcast in HD where
available. Filmed in a vast number of locales including Amsterdam, Paris,
Miami, New York City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Panama City, and clear across
Canada, WEBDREAMS uncovers the booming online scene at a turning point. At
this stage in the game, it's the highly specialized niche sites that rule the
web. It's an environment where anything goes, and fortunes can be built or
lost in an instant.
