(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Vivid's popular new series ''Brand New Faces'' was the star of a recent segment on the CBS Paramount syndicated program ''The Insider'' which was broadcast on Thursday, May 1st.
The crew from ''The Insider'' first visited with company co-chairman Steven Hirsch at his office to discuss how he cautions young actresses who want to enter the adult business for the first time about how their lives will irrevocably change.
The next stop for the crew was a production set where Vivid Girl Meggan Mallone offered tips to ''Brand New Faces'' newcomers Melanie Jayne and Hilo. ''Think of this as a mainstream Hollywood movie, only when you get to the sex scene, there isn't any fade to black,'' said Ms. Mallone. Both young actresses were also interviewed about their debut in the industry.
''The Insider'' is a half-hour newsmagazine that is hosted by Pat O'Brien from L.A. and Lara Spencer from New York. The program is broadcast in all of the top 100 markets in the country. It offers behind-the-scenes perspective on the entertainment business and celebrity lives.
