The new Netflix doc you and your friends are going to be discussing over brunch? Hot Girls Wanted, a Rashida Jones (opens in new tab)-produced nonfiction feature about the amateur porn industry and its exploitative practices.

Deadline reports (opens in new tab) that the media-streaming service picked up the documentary for domestic and international distribution later this year. "Netflix is the ideal partner for us; not only do they understand this film but they're the perfect platform to reach the many people who need to see it," Jones said.

The movie is directed by two women (Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus) and was made in partnership with the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction. 

Feminism, the advancement of sexual knowledge, and a story that desperately needs to be told—how could we not get behind this?
