U.S. cable network Logo has added the one-hour documentary I’m a Stripper (pictured) to its spring slate.

Produced by Border2Border Entertainment, the one-off profiles three men who work as male strippers. It follows a group of friends who make a living dancing in the Niagara Region, a young Asian man rebelling against his conservative upbringing by stripping in Montreal, and the performers in the Las Vegas show, Thunder from Down Under.

The film will air as part of the network’s ‘WHAT!?’ doc strand on April 9.

“With the success of Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike the obvious next step was to meet the real deal and ask the hard questions, pardon the pun,” director Charlie David said in a statement. “Is it about money? Is it a sexual turn-on? How did they get here? What do their families and friends think? Do they take their work home with them? How much do they make? The answers are often surprising.”

I’m a Stripper was produced by David and Nico Stagias for Border2Border and Logo execs Christopher Willey and Jonathan Pankratz.
