Sundance: Netflix Picks Up Porn Documentary ‘Hot Girls Wanted’

After failing to make much of a splash in Park City, Netflix has picked up its first Sundance Film Festival release, “Hot Girls Wanted.”

The film shines a light on the porn world and the young women who opt to make a career in the industry. It will premiere exclusively in all territories where Netflix is available in 2015.

Rashida Jones (“Parks and Recreation”) produced the film, and  Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus directed the picture.

“Netflix is the ideal partner for us; not only do they understand this film but they’re the perfect platform to reach the many people who need to see it,” said Jones in a statement.

Netflix didn’t make the big purchase that many expected the company to at Sundance, but it did premiere the documentary “What Happened, Miss Simone?” about singer Nina Simone to strong reviews at the festival.

The deal for “Hot Girls Wanted” was negotiated by UTA Independent Film Group and Submarine on behalf of the filmmakers. Deadline first reported the sale.
