Playboy goes out on a date

'Foursome' follows two couples for 24 hours

Are cable viewers ready for a reality dating series far more graphic than ABC’s “Bachelor” or MTV’s “Real World”?

Playboy TV will find out starting July 8, when it kicks off “Foursome,” a half-hour series that focuses each week (for 10 weeks) on two different buff young men and women who meet one another at a mansion in the Hollywood Hills and, for the next 24 hours, alternately get on each other’s nerves and become drawn together to make love.

Cameras and microphones follow the participants’ every move, including their forays into the bedroom. A spokesman for the network said the sexual maneuvering will be frequently laced with conflict.

For example, during one half-hour, a woman gets drunk and alienates the others by making a fool of herself. In another episode, one man is so cocky and arrogant that he turns the women off, driving them into each other’s arms as they discover their inner bisexuality. Playboy will encourage the women to explore one another, whereas any man-on-man sexual shenanigans are strictly off-limits.

Playboy TV has commissioned Double D Prods. to do “Foursome,” whose exec producer is James Dubose. Playboy TV is available both on monthly subscription and as a pay-per-view service.
