Showtime to air 'Seymore Butts' porno star reality TV series


By Reality TV World staff, 12/15/2002 

Variety reports that Showtime has greenlit a half-hour latenight reality series chronicling the life of adult entertainment producer, director and occasional performer Adam Glasser, aka Seymore Butts.

The currently untitled 10-episode project will focus on various aspects of Glasser's personal and professional lives as well as the people around him. In addition to Glasser, his mother, who keeps his books, and his cousin Stevie will be featured. "This is not an expose on the industry," executive producer Arnold Shapiro told Daily Variety.

"It's about the ironies and the humor that are associated with a man who chooses to have an alter ego and do this work." "This particular show combines the best elements of real characters and funny situations and great storytelling," said Jay Blumenfield, who is so-executive producing. "It also features porn. What more could you want from a half-hour of television?"

Shapiro said he and production partner Allison Grodner (the duo beyond such other reality TV fare such as CBS' "Big Brother") got the idea to tackle the subject of adult entertainment -- for pay TV in a latenight setting -- last year after seeing "American Porn," which aired as part of PBS' "Frontline" documentary series. Showtime, which has not set a premiere date, declined to comment.
