WE tv Pulls ‘Sex Box’: May Come Back for More

“Sex Box” has finished early. After five episodes, WE tv has pulled the racy reality show from it’s schedule, Variety has confirmed.

Sex Box was a bold programming swing that broke new ground but did not connect with large numbers of viewers,” the cabler said in a statement.

However, the series may return, after the format is given another pass.

“We are working with our production partners on a potential reformatted version of the show and are thankful for the efforts of everyone involved,” the statement continued.

The Relativity Television production, based on the U.K. talk show of the same name, puts real couples in crisis into a soundproof box where they have sex, and immediately afterword, are forced to address their issues onstage in front of a panel of sex experts.

The headline-making series intended to serve as a new spin on unscripted relationship shows, but did not perform well enough to complete its nine-episode order, The Hollywood Reporter first reported. “Sex Box” debuted in February to 378,000 viewers, and after just four episodes, was moved out of primetime and into the midnight time slot.
