Continuing the U.S. TV trend for nudity themed reality programming, TLC is expanding its provocatively titled special Buying Naked (pictured) into an eight-part series, to premiere next month.

Made by Paper Route Productions, the series is set in Pasco County, Florida, which boasts one of the largest concentrations of nudist communities in the U.S.

The show follows realtor Jackie Youngblood and her team as they help naked homebuyers find their dream house. It originally aired as a 2 x 30-minute special in November 2013.

The 8 x 30-minutes series will launch on June 28 at 10 p.m. EST, and joins other nude-related U.S. TV titles, such as Discovery’s Naked and Afraid, VH1′s Dating Naked and WE tv’s Sex Box.
