MONTREAL, January 11, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Quebec’s TV sex show producer Anne Marie Losique has announced that she will launch an English version of her “adult entertainment” channel - Vanessa TV - across Canada this fall.

The Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) licensed Vanessa TV on April 1, 2010 with the requirement that programming include a minimum of 20 percent “Canadian content.” The channel began broadcasting in October.

Losique is responsible for producing shows in Quebec such as “Sex-Shop” and “Sex Shop Extreme.” The producer described Vanessa TV as a Canadian content blend of sexualized day-time TV moving to hard-core porn at night.

Losique told QMI that while her French language productions were very popular in France - “I’ve always known I had a niche in the French market - in France, they buy everything I do,” - she believed English Canada was an unexploited market for Quebec porn.

“Yes, you have the right-wing conservatives, but it’s not all like that,” she said, saying that there is a growing “soft-core” scene in Toronto and Vancouver.
