Spike.com Gets ‘PG Porn’

Sex sells, sure, but will porn without the sex sell too?

Apparently so, as Spike.com has picked up another 11 episodes of “James Gunn’s PG Porn,” a short-form comedy series that has everything you’d expect from a porno — cheesy music, laughable titles, unrealistic situations and locations, really bad come-on lines — without the sex.

“This has been a very exciting time for Internet content,” said Gunn, the series creator. “Kids today don’t get their content the way we did, with television sitcoms and comic strips. They wake up and get online.”

The first episode of “James Gunn’s PG Porn,” titled “Nailing Your Wife,” debuted Oct. 8 and got more than 1 million hits in five days, Spike.com reported. Riffing on the porn industry, the episodes pair a regular actor with an actual adult entertainment actress. Gunn said he has lined up Michael Rosenbaum (“Smallville”) and Craig Robinson (“The Office”) for future episodes. Adult actresses Jenna Haze and BellaDonna have signed on as well. Each episode features an original score from Tyler Bates (300, Dawn of the Dead).

“I never thought porn without sex would be such a creatively invigorating space,” said Jake Zim, COO of Safran Digital, which is producing the show.

Thanks to the full season deal, which allows Gunn to retain the rights to the content, he said he’s angling for an eventual DVD release.

“We’ll have a few episodes that didn’t air, tons of bonus content … though the DVD may not be PG,” he said.
