Fox Reality uploads to iTunes

First episodes of original series to bow online

Fox Reality has partnered with Apple to deliver the first episode of all of its upcoming original series to iTunes — for free — one week prior to their premieres.

First up will be the premiere of cabler’s “My Bare Lady.” Seg will be available on iTunes Nov. 30, days before its Dec. 7 on-air debut. On Dec. 8, the episode will be priced at Apple’s usual $1.99 retail cost.

“Bare Lady” follows U.S. adult film stars in a competition to become legit stage actresses in the West End.

Other originals set to bow on iTunes include “Rob and Amber: Against the Odds,” which premieres in January, and law-enforcement skein “The Academy,” slated for May.

Video podcasts of interviews from Fox Reality’s daily show “Reality Remix” and episodes of “Solitary” have already generated nearly 1 million downloads since their iTunes debuts in June and September, respectively.

“We’re fortunate to have enjoyed some real success with our original content on iTunes, and so this seemed like the next logical step,” said Fox Reality chief operating officer-general manager David Lyle.
