(LOS ANGELES,CA) -- Vivid Entertainment Group, the leading adult film company, has signed a seven-year contract with adult megastar and internationally famous cover girl model Tera Patrick and her company TeraVision.
The agreement gives Vivid exclusive distribution rights in North America to all movies produced by TeraVision, including films starring Tera Patrick and any actresses signed by TeraVision to exclusive contracts. A minimum of four movies per year is expected to be released under the pact.
"Tera has met and surpassed every expectation we had for her," says Steven Hirsch, co-founder/co-chairman of Vivid. "Her films Tera, Tera, Tera, Reign of Tera and Collision Course are all top sellers. We are also very impressed with what she and her husband, Evan Seinfeld, have accomplished as entrepreneurs in such a short time and we're excited to be their distribution partners as they grow."
Said Tera Patrick: "I am absolutely ecstatic to have Vivid as a sister to TeraVision. As a woman executive in this business, it's a glamorous honor to be a 'Vivid Girl for Life.' Our track record in the first two years together of having three number one movies is an indication of how well our companies work together. Vivid has always set the standard for high quality award winning movies and top selling contract girls. Now, as long term members of the Vivid family, we are looking forward to seeing TeraVision and our own contract stars reach a new level in erotic entertainment."
Tera is the only model to ever appear on the covers of Playboy and Penthouse simultaneously. She appears frequently in both FHM and Stuff magazines. Earlier this year FHM magazine in the U.K., announced that it was launching a regular monthly sex advice column written by Tera and she was the subject of a day-in-the-life feature in FHM's September issue in the U.S. She has recently appeared several times on VH-1 and was featured earlier this year on VH-1's special "The Hottest Girlfriends and Wives of Rock Stars" on which she also served as a commentator. Additionally she is the official "Sexpert" columnist on the popular AdultFriendFinder.com site.
Mr. Seinfeld, her husband and business partner, is the rock star front man for the group Biohazard, which has sold over three million albums, and is also known for his role as a prisoner in 40 episodes of the HBO hit series "Oz."
As a production and marketing company TeraVision currently has exclusive contracts with stars Nikki Benz and Lucy Lee and plans on signing additional actresses in the coming year.
