(Los Angeles, CA / February 11, 2021) — Vixen Media Group (VMG) announced today that its exclusive contract star Maitland Ward has signed a two-year contract extension that aims to spotlight the star in several high-profile projects across the company’s specialty brands.
Ward – who holds the longest-running female performer contract in VMG’s history – is already prepping a slew of marquee projects, including the highly-anticipated second season of 2021’s Film of the Year from Deeper, Muse, slated for production this spring with director Kayden Kross.
“Maitland’s presence in this industry is shifting the way the mainstream perceives performers and the quality of the content we make”, says Kayden Kross. “It has been a game-changer to be able to work with her, and I can’t wait to keep raising the bar that Maitland’s work resets with each new project. No one is more devoted to her craft, more talented, or more willing to take risks than Maitland. It is an honor to be able to take this journey with her.”
The seasoned actress is also expanding her production talents in both writing and directing capacity with the company and is going to surprise fans with some ‘firsts’ not yet seen on screen. She is set to develop unique ‘non-XXX’ VMG projects as well, such as a Behind-the-Scenes series that will invite viewers into her personal day-to-day life.
In the short time since she made her striking debut in 2019 on Drive, then followed up with a compelling performance in Muse, Ward has racked up five AVN Awards, six XBIZ Awards, and one XCritic, and NightMoves trophy each for her efforts – most notably with winning Best Actress, two years in a row.
“I’m so proud to continue to be the face of Deeper and to have such a valued place in the Vixen family,” says Maitland. “I can’t wait for all the exciting new projects that lie ahead, taking me to new places as an actor and sexual performer all while allowing me to stretch my creative talents in both writing and directing.”
Maitland continues, “Kayden has inspired and encouraged me to create in all branches of filmmaking. Our partnership and trusted friendship have afforded me to explore and push boundaries as an artist and we will continue to do so fiercely and passionately in the years ahead.”
