Rob Mills put me onto this one too.

According to NewTeeVee, the two guys who made Kate Modern and Lonely Girl 15 formed a company and raised $5 million on the claim that their two series have drawn 150 million views.

NewTeeVee characterizes these two web series as

some of the best examples of entertainment that truly uses the web.

Go over and watch a few of them.  I made it easy and provided the links.  Tell me what you think.

  1. I have followed your structural analyses of television series formats over the past year or so, but only sporadically since I was located either in the United Arab Emirates or (currently) in Germany. So American or Canadian content has not been readily accessible.

    I think that many of your overseas readers, particularly those interested in ‘webisodix’, would be happy to see you bring to bear your skills on this form of audiovisual storytelling.

    For me “Sam has seven friends” and “Prom Queen” were the highlights of the genre to date.

    Hey Malcolm,
    Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll try to get to them.
