Porn Star Rocco Siffredi is getting a family TV show in Italy

By 10.09.13

Porn star Rocco Siffredi, known up until now mainly for providing aggressive anal in films such as Buttman and Rocco’s Brazilian Butt Fest and Dippy Longcocking is set to provide love advice to middle-aged couples in a family show called “It’s Up to Rocco,” on primetime TV in Italy. Oh Italy. They’re just so… Italian, you know?

From Variety:

…his primetime reality program, “It’s Up to Rocco,” premiering later this month on Rupert Murdoch’s free-to-air terrestrial Italo channel Cielo, is being touted as a family show.

The show will mix irony, empathy and Siffredi’s experience, but, to hear the host tell it, “Sex is not the main subject.”

Adds Lorenzo Torraca, whose Verve Media Co. is producing the series: “It’s a Rocco you really don’t expect, and that’s the whole idea. It’s primetime family fare with a social element of sorts.”

Sky Italia, which operates Cielo, spent two years fine-tuning the format before ordering 12 fifty-minute episodes.

Torraca sees “Rocco” as a contrast to the T&A aired by the country’s two top TV players, Mediaset and RAI. Yet the show will clearly play on Siffredi’s bona fides in the adult genre.

“Our impression is that there is great interest from a female demographic in this show,” Torraca says. “Seeing Rocco make the switch from being a porn star to becoming a primetime TV personality is very intriguing for them.”

All-a these-a other-a network, alla dey know is-a filth! They donna know-a nothin for-a class! We take-a porn-a star, tell him-a make-a nice a-show for-a Mama. Fun-a for-a the wholla family. (*kisses fingers, grabs crotch*)

For Siffredi, getting a show on primetime TV in Italy after doing porn for so long wasn’t easy. But an ad he made in 2006 for Amica Chips helped him begin to change his image. The ad played on the double meaning in Italian of the word “patatina,” which can mean both potato chip and vagina.

I once saw Rocco take a woman from behind while dunking her head in a toilet. I wouldn’t be surprised if he becomes prime minister.

Eh! At-a least he’s-a no-a pervert, a-like a-dat schifozo Belusconi! (*spits on the ground, slaps palm against bicep while making fist*)
