MavTV is teaming up with world-famous glamour and fitness photographer, Rob Sims, to expand on one of the network's goals of offering compelling HD programming that focuses on beautiful women. Rob Sims will be looking for fresh, new talent to join the network as "Mav Girls" for several series ideas that are currently on the drawing board for 2009. He will serve as a creative director finding "Mav Girls" to help promote the network's visibility and add to the stable of original HD programming content targeting men.
"MavTV is excited to have Rob Sims commitment to find us top models that want to help us promote our brand and draw attention to the HD original programming content produced by our company in a variety of different genres targeting men. Rob is a powerhouse in the world of glamour and bikini model photography, so attractive talent seeks him out. Using Rob's photography skills and contacts will help the MavTV brand build on our ability to entice great looking women into shows on the network to both promote the brand and our original series," said Steve Severn, CEO of MavTV.

Each year, Sims shoots more than 25 magazine covers and 3,000 pages for some of the world's top publications.
"If viewers want to get up close and personal with my models, HD is the only way to truly see it and MavTV will become an excellent showcase for my work," said Sims. "No other cable network is committed to searching out and shooting the hottest models, so I am really looking forward to helping MavTV give men more of what they really want to see in a Maxim style format."
Sims will add a new dimension to MavTV's current female-focused series offerings such as "Bikini Allstars," "Best of the Best," and "Fitness Beauties," as well as participating in the creation of additional reality shows offering viewers behind-the-scenes action and personal interviews with the models.
