The LGBTQ+ network ordered three new reality series, including courtroom docuseries Iconic Justice and hour-long competition series Hot Haus.

OUTtv has greenlit four new originals and renewed two more as it continues to build out its slate of original programming.

The LGBTQ+ network’s new commissions include a pair of new reality series: Iconic Justice (6 x 30 minutes), in which Judge Willam presides over a series of outrageous “cases” brought by queer folks, from feuding throuples to a furious drag queen; and Hot Haus (6 x 60 minutes), which sees queer sex workers and sexy content creators compete in a series of titillating challenges to claim the title of the “Next Queer Sex Symbol.” Both projects are produced by Daddy TV.

OUTtv also ordered Ruckus in Dutchess (8 x 30 minutes, Charles Plummer Productions), in which new staff are brought together to help revive a Black-owned barbecue bistro in rural-Republican Dutchess, NY. As previously announced in March, OUTtv commissioned Dating Unlocked (10 x 20 minutes, Border2Border Entertainment), where LGBTQ2+ daters play games in the pursuit of intimacy and a perfect match.

On the renewal front, OUTtv greenlit second seasons of its drama series Cam Boy (4 x 30 minutes, Emotion Pictures) and comedy series Wigs in a Blanket (8 x 30 minutes, Producers Entertainment Group).

Most recently, OUTtv hired former Viacom exec Stevenson Greene to head up development for OUTtvUSA (its recently launched U.S. SVOD platform) and Producers Entertainment Group. In the newly created role, Greene is leading development and production for series, specials and other original content for OUTtvUSA.
