News brief: Logo dials up Call Girls

US cable channel Logo has acquired a documentary about the British phone sex industry.

The Viacom-owned net has bought the 1x47mins Call Girls from distributor Electric Sky, which comes from Back2Back productions and looks into the lives of women paid to “talk dirty” to callers. It first broadcast on UK terrestrial Channel 4 as My Phone Sex Secrets.

“Call Girls is exactly the kind of documentary Logo has been seeking for the next season of ‘What!?’ documentaries. We look forward to hopefully finding more smart and provocative documentaries from Electric Sky in the future,” said Logo senior VP, business and legal affairs, Richard Parent.
