Naked News is a Canadian sexploitation satirical news show that first aired in 1999. It features a cast of attractive female news anchors that present the current affairs of the week while slowly strip off clothing. Needless to say, it quickly amassed a following and became a staple diet in adult entertainment. Though primarily a web-based program, some television stations did carry it late at night, such as British channel Sumo TV. Due to the program’s success in titillation, Naked News has spawned versions in other countries, such as Naked News Japan, and led to imitation erotic shows in countries like Brazil and Norway. There was also a short-lived male version of the show in Canada.
As for the look of the show, Naked News is filmed in front of a seemingly green screen set and the studio graphics are all created through CGI. It’s noticeable, but fairly well done for what is likely a low-budget production.
Inspiration for Naked News may have come from the United Kingdom, which in the late 90’s aired a show called Tiffany’s Big City Tips on the cable channel L!VE TV. This show featured model Tiffany Banister stripping to her underwear while providing financial news.
Naked News pushed the boundaries of news broadcasting into areas no other news company had went before. Aside from the exploitation of its news talent by having them strip off right before your eyes, they also deliver the news with tongue in cheek humour and they’ll cross any boundary when it comes to satirizing celebrities.
Naked News is very entertaining if you’re looking for something stimulating to watch while getting up to date on current events. It’s a good companion to those erotic adult entertainment films like Emmanuelle but with a more light-hearted atmosphere.
