(BEVERLY HILLS, CA) -- Playboy TV will premiere a new weekly half hour anthology series, ``Sexy Urban Legends,'' Sunday, May 20th at 10:00 PM ET, 11:00 PM PT.
The Internet has provided countless pop culture tales whose genesis is unknown, but whose influence on the modern psyche is undeniable. Known as Urban Legends, these stories have truly taken on lives of their own as they are emailed from one user to another. Playboy TV has adapted many of these contemporary fables into an adult anthology series that thrills as often as it entices. ``Too erotic to be real?'' We'll never know. But watching ``Sexy Urban Legends'' will likely be only the beginning of the story.
``This is a very ambitious series for us,'' said Sol Weisel, Executive Vice President of Production, Playboy TV Networks Worldwide. ``It has the largest and most varied cast, locations and sets of any production we've ever undertaken. The series has also allowed us to broaden the erotic content of our original programming. It's another example of Playboy TV bringing viewers programming that is not available anywhere else.''
