Kelly Holland launches Chick Media at Mipcom

Chick Media’s CEO, Kelly Holland, former owner and CEO of Penthouse, attends Mipcom to launch several new initiatives.

Chick Media, her female-centric company, explores a variety of fresh perspectives on erotica. Holland is bringing 2 finished shows that are concurrently in production on new episodes. She will also be at the market to discuss the upcoming launch of The Chick Channel, erotica created by women, targeting a broad, diverse audience. Chick Media is also in discussions with technology companies to launch a unique platform delivering programming, interactive entertainment and informational services.

The Chick Channel - launching Q1 2019, brings together women directors, writers, and producers of erotica. The channel’s mission is to facilitate new views and voices for erotic programming. Programming will include full features, shot in 4K, available in both erotic and explicit formats, multiple reality series  and talk shows. The channel will launch with a library of original Chick Media programming as well as licensed content with monthly refreshes of 10 hours.

The Sexperts is a candid talk show hosted by a panel of renowned sex therapists, where each episode features one couple and the challenges they face in their intimate lives, while Naked Hollywood is an up close and personal, backstage program takes you on set and into the lives of the stars of the adult business. This behind-the-scenes, between-the-sheets, half-hour show is shot in 4K and is available in multiple formats including explicit, erotic and R-rated. The series was first produced in 2011 and aired around the world on several platforms including Bravo UK, Virgin TV, SBS Holland and Direct TV in the U.S. A new season is currently in production.

Holland says: 'I am excited to bring all of Chick Media’s hot properties to Mipcom. There is a growing demand for female positive, erotic programming.  We live in a world of almost limitless, free pornography; fungible, interchangeable and indistinguishable. We have the opportunity to entertain, educate and excite discriminating viewers around the world.  I think it’s about time.  We’re looking forward to meeting with licensees and partners  as we prepare to launch The Chick Channel next year.'
