WE tv Orders New Series SEX BOX for 2015 Premiere
We tv today announced the series greenlight of Sex Box for an early 2015 exclusive U.S. premiere. Produced by Relativity Television, and adapted from the UK series of the same name, Sex Box is an extreme therapy reality concept that lets couples discuss their relationship issues with a panel of experts and then retire to a camera-free, soundproof box on the show's set to have sex. They emerge to immediately discuss their experiences in the box and most intimate personal issues with the experts, as the cameras roll before a studio audience. The first season will feature nine, one-hour episodes.
"Sex Box is one of the most unique and compelling show concepts we've ever seen, and we can't wait to bring it to WE tv," said Marc Juris, WE tv's president. "Our featured couples will get a once-in-a-lifetime experience, while our viewers will get the kind of bold, break-through-the-clutter programming they increasingly associate with WE tv."
Scientists and researchers cite that people are more trusting and open in the moments immediately after sex due to the body's natural release of oxytocin, also known as the "cuddle hormone." As a result, post coital Couples Therapy is more powerful and effective.
WE tv's panel of experts includes: Dr. Fran Walfish, a leading Beverly Hills relationship psychotherapist who treats celebrity couples and LA's poshest residents through her private practice; Dr. Fran is a published author of The Self-Aware Parent, has appeared on The Doctors (CBS), NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, ABC News, CNN and Fox News Channel. She is also a regular on-camera contributor for the CBS and Fox News affiliates in Los Angeles.
