Young Hollywood is growing out of its infancy stage. The millenial-based multimedia company just announced the launch of its new over-the-top network, Young Hollywood TV.
Young Hollywood TV will deliver premium long-form programming centered around celebrity and lifestyle topics. The network plans to create and deliver over 500 hours of new content annually, including scripted and reality programming. The multimedia company will also launch eight new half-hour series for its Young Hollywood TV network, with titles such as Pop Culture Underground and Young Hollywood Food Feed already lined up for production. The network is set to launch sometime in January 2015.
“For several years, Young Hollywood has given millennials shortform exclusive celebrity interviews with the biggest names in Hollywood along with unparalleled behind-the-scenes access,” said RJ Williams, founder and CEO of Young Hollywood, in the release. “We now plan to heavily invest in our own IP, as well as work with outside talent and creators, to continue to innovate and expand our content offerings. By adding premium long form content to our already vast library, we will continue to strengthen the Young Hollywood foothold in a rapidly developing digital market and provide transformative growth for our company.”
Young Hollywood’s short-form content has garnered 2 billion views to date (according to company reps), and is available on multiple digital platforms such as YouTube, Yahoo, and AOL. Starting January 2015, you’ll be able to find Young Hollywood TV long-form content on its current distribution sites as well by way of applications on supported devices like Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Blu-ray players, and Android tablets and phones.
