Falcon / Raging Stallion Studios has announced today (July 11, 2014) that they have acquired rival studio Hot House Entertainment. At the same time, Hot House president Steven Scarborough announced his retirement from the porn business and Chris Ward, president of Falcon / Raging Stallion, will now head the three-studio conglomerate.
“I started my own career at Hot House so it’s very exciting for me to bring Steven’s company into the Falcon / Raging Stallion family,” Ward says. “We plan to preserve and protect Steven’s outstanding legacy and continue filming in the Hot House tradition and style. I intend to make sure that Hot House fans keep getting exactly what they want.” As such, Hot House’s current film director Christian Owen is being retained, as is director of Hot House operations Rob LeVan.
Steven Scarborough’s career has spanned 27 years and he founded Hot House in 1993 after leaving Falcon Studios. Scarborough says, “Because I came from Falcon and Chris came from Hot House, I feel this deal is a perfect fit. I reached out to Chris because of our long history together. I am absolutely confident that Chris and his team will continue the Hot House tradition, which is something very, very important to me.”
Chris Ward began his career at Hot House in the studio’s fetish off-shoot called Club Inferno, but by 1999, Ward left Hot House and founded Raging Stallion Studios with JD Slater. In 2012, Raging Stallion and Falcon were brought together as one company; the addition of Hot House creates one happy and huge gay porn family.
The announcement did not clarify the name of the new company. However, Hot House, Club Inferno Dungeon, Falcon Studios, and Raging Stallion Studios membership sites will continue to run independently, although there will be cross promotion of content between the sites. Likewise, Hot House’s 300 titles will soon be available on cable television through FalconTV.
