The original “Undressed” won a GLAAD Award for being one of the only shows at the time to feature gay, lesbian and bisexual characters and same-sex relationships.
“‘Undressed’ was ahead of its time and we’re looking forward to developing the series for a whole new generation,” said Pamela Post, head of scripted programming for MTV Studios, MTV, VH1 and Logo. “Much has changed in the dating/relationship world since the series first premiered and we’re excited to showcase how both have evolved.”
Joffé is represented by Gersh and Zero Gravity Management.
