Joe Francis Career
The career of Joe Francis has been short yet eventful. Filled with scurrilous accusations and demeaning allegations, we can say Joe has had a tough life.
After passing the university, Joe tried his luck in the corporate sector for some time but did not find it interesting. A great opportunity waited for him as he joined a syndicated production house to act as a production assistant for a show named “Real TV” (1996).
The reality show was unique and one of its kind in America, at that time. It streamed exceptional and astonishing incidents that were left behind by mainstream media channels.
Francis learned the work and recognized the potential of this informal sector of media. He was ambitious and chose to follow his dream.
While working with the team of “Real TV”, he was exposed to several videos that portrayed graphic violence and potentially disturbing stories. An idea popped up in his mind and he syndicated his own house, creating his first project by the name “Banned from Television”.
This new syndicated show was similar to “Real TV” but focused on graphically violent lore. Financing on explicit content, the show boomed and Joe’s bank balance rose exponentially.
“Girls Gone Wild” was Francis’s next big project. The sexually explicit direct-response franchise was like a thing that ‘redefined’ pornography. Joe knew the audience base and catered to them accordingly. As expected, the project was a massive success, enriching Joe Francis’ wealth, even more.
However, all these projects undertook a huge toll on his image. Frequent court cases and legal procedures devastated his personal life along with his career.
