TORONTO (July 3, 2014) – M3 turns up the heat with sexy summer entertainment with the premieres of brand-new, anticipated new series and returning favourites. Blazing the trail this July is U.K.-based firefighter drama THE SMOKE, premiering Thursday, July 17 at 10 p.m. ET. Leading up to THE SMOKE is the premiere of the revealing courtship reality show DATING NAKED, at 9 p.m. ET.

Direct from the U.K., fiery new mini-series THE SMOKE introduces viewers to the high-adrenaline adventures of the White Watch, a team of London firefighters. Leading the team is Kev (Jamie Bamber, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA), a firefighter injured and betrayed during the worst fire battle of his career. As he returns to work, his gutsy girlfriend, Trish (Jodie Whittaker, BROADCHURCH, One Day) is by his side, as well as his cocky mate and fellow firefighter, Mal (Rhashan Stone, STRIKE BACK).

Preceding THE SMOKE, M3 sizzles this month with the highly-anticipated, edgy reality series DATING NAKED. In this 10-part cheeky experiment, participants take exposing themselves to a new level, all set in remote and exotic locations. DATING NAKED follows a man and a woman as they each date two different suitors, all with no clothing, and no inhibitions.
