Cathouse: The Series
is an HBO
television series that documents the professional lives of the workers at the Moonlite BunnyRanch
, a legal brothel
. The 11 episodes of the first season were originally broadcast in 2005; 6 episodes of the second season aired two years later. The series is the direct successor of the HBO documentaries Cathouse
(2002) and Cathouse 2: Back in the Saddle
(2003) which also focused on the Bunny Ranch. On New Year's Day 2008 at 12:05am, HBO aired a special episode of the series entitled "Cathouse the Musical." Also in 2008, two standalone episodes (not part of a full season) aired--"Cathouse: Come to the Party" and "Best of Cathouse."
Unlike the specials, which showed only the negotiations between brothel workers and their clients, the series was more sexually explicit and also showed the actual sexual activity with customers. Regulars on the series include Moonlite owner Dennis Hof, his then girlfriend Sunset Thomas (a porn star who was also a Moonlite feature), Air Force Amy, Bridget Powers and Isabella Soprano.
