Jellysmack and Pinterest tap Emmymade, LaurDIY, and more to lead slate of original series

Exactly two weeks ago, Nadine Zylstra—a longtime key exec in YouTube’s now largely gutted Originals sector—announced she was leaving the platform to spearhead a content push at Pinterest.

Now, we’re seeing the sorts of shows she and the rest of Pinterest’s originals team are working on.

Pinterest and content optimization/distribution company Jellysmack have teamed up to produce a five-show slate featuring YouTubers Emmymade (2.81 million subscribers), LaurDIY (8.5 million), Karina Garcia (9.24 million), and Liz Fenwick (674,000), plus Jellysmack’s Black beauty brand Crowned Ladies (141,000 followers on Instagram).

Each series includes 18 two- to three-minute episodes intended to “educate, teach, and inspire the Pinterest community,” Jellysmack said in a company blog post. Episodes will premiere weekly.

This is Jellysmack’s first partnership with Pinterest, and also an expansion of Jellysmack’s Creator Program, through which it works with creators like MrBeast and PewDiePie to distribute their YouTube content across numerous platforms.

“Our collaboration with Pinterest is the perfect example of how Jellysmack can add value to both creators and platforms,” Stefanie Schwartz, global head of platform partnerships at Jellysmack, said in a statement. “We’re able to bring the most talented creators to Pinterest and open a new door for our creator partners to expand their audience. It’s a win-win.”
