Erica McLean goes from Playboy Bunny to Acclaimed Director

(Los Angeles— August 12th, 2011)Long before the upcoming series “The Playboy Club” was announced, acclaimed director Erica McLean herself donned the iconic ears and one-piece for a role in the real life version. Before “The Flying Pink Pig” courted controversy and the Barely Legal franchise was just a twinkle in her eye, McLean was a Playboy Bunny in one of the premiere Playboy Clubs on the East Coast.

This brief gig has since become a footnote in the director’s story, but the small momentum it provided pushed her on the long path to where she is today. After moving on from the Playboy Club, McLean moved to the West Coast and was once again hired by the company. This time, instead of serving cocktails to celebrities and practicing the famous “Bunny Dip,” she would be doing makeup for the magazine’s centerfold shoots. After working in stills she soon graduated to video, and working on exclusive playmate profiles. She then went on to work music videos for heavyweights like Garth Brooks and Reba McEntire and embarked upon a variety of other projects before returning to the adult industry to found the Hustler’s Barely Legal franchise with her late husband. With the success of Barely Legal, McLean soon set her sights on original features with “Erica McLean’s Hardcore Circus,” and the rest is history.

 

Fast-forward to today and we can see the successful director in her prime, creating original stories and universes with new own unique authorial stamp.

 

“It’s been a long road, but now I’ve found my calling in producing and directing adult–and I absolutely love it. Being able to work and create is a dream come true” said McLean

 

McLean’s highly anticipated sequel “The Flying Pink Pig 2” for CalVista and Cheeky Monkey Pictures and distributed by Metro will be hitting the streets August 30th.

 

This latest chapter in the food truck caper promises to be more colorful, have more sex scenes with greater intensity, and adds Alexis Texas to the roster with co-stars Sunny Lane, Nicki Hunter, Cytherea, Mika Kim, Breanna Sparks, and Tessa Taylor. Ron Jeremy reprises his role as the villainous rival threatening to take down the food truck once and for all with a naughty sex tape, and Lee Bang, Dale Dabone, TJ Cummings, and Tyler Knight show up to sample the truck’s tasty goods.

 

“I’m proud of it, we had such a great cast. The production was essentially a lot of fun sprinkled with hardcore sex. We took it to a whole new level” said McLane.

 

McLean’s earlier feature “Alice” starring Sunny Lane was recently nominated for a 2011 Nightmoves Award for “Best Parody.”

 

“I’m ticked pink to find out that ‘Alice’ is up for a Nightmoves Award” said McLean. “So many people get their first recognition from Nightmoves and I’m honored to be considered.”

 

Her latest release “Erica McLean’s Flying Solo” for CalVista and Cheeky Monkey is on store shelves now. The fresh compilation features Shayla LaVeaux, Sunny Lane, Cytherea, Nicki Hunter, Sasha Heart, Emy Reyes, and Megan Foxx all exploring their bodies and living out steamy masturbatory fantasies.

 

McLean will be signing at he upcoming Exxxotica Los Angeles August 26th to 28th at the Galaxy Publicity booth.
