‘HORRIBLE’ NEW LINE-UP ANNOUNCED

Posted in My Damn Channel, New Series on February 10, 2008 by Rob Barnett

For Immediate Release

MY DAMN CHANNEL LAUNCHES ‘HORRIBLE’ NEW LINE-UP

Comic Soap Opera, Animated Shorts, and ‘Cookin’ with Coolio’ Premiere Today

Over 13 Million Views for Original ‘DAMN’ Videos

‘Wainy Days’ Season 2 Finale Today

NEW YORK, February 11, 2008 – My Damn Channel (www.MyDamnChannel.com), the entertainment studio and new media platform, today premieres three new reasons to work less and watch more video: “Horrible People,” “Cookin’ with Coolio,” and “Carnival of Stuff.” The company also debuts a new look and all-new features designed by Big Fat Brain and built by Reborn Studio.

My Damn Channel’s original comedy and music videos have racked up over 13 million views since launching six months ago. The entertainment studio backs professional artists by producing and distributing videos on its own site and in broad syndication on major portals including YouTube (www.YouTube.com/MyDamnChannel)

My Damn Channel’s music destination is led by legendary music producer Don Was. The comedy line-up includes web phenom Andy Milonakis. Viral hits include videos by Harry Shearer (3.5 million views) and Big Fat Brain’s “You Suck at Photoshop” (3.6 million views). David Wain’s episodic comedy “Wainy Days” has over 4.1 million views and celebrates its second season finale today with episode 20.

“The best talent line-up in the game deliver original new videos every week,” said Rob Barnett, president & CEO of My Damn Channel. “We’re building a big brand, mass audience and real revenues at a fast pace without any corporate red tape.”

Today’s premieres include:

“Horrible People” – an evil comic soap opera
Actor and comedian A.D. Miles (“Wet Hot American Summer,” “Dog Bites Man”) writes, directs and stars in a depraved soap opera, which takes place at a never-ending cocktail party. Kristin Schaal (“The Flight of the Conchords”) and Mather Zickel (“Dancing with Shiva”) co-star with A.D. Miles. The series is produced by Jonathan Stern, and new episodes will unfold every Monday at lunchtime for 10 weeks of “addictive workus interruptus.”

“Cookin’ with Coolio” – the name says it all
The award-winning Hip Hop superstar is on a mission to invade your kitchen and create funkalicious dishes every Wednesday at lunchtime. The series is produced by Dead Crow Pictures.

“Carnival of Stuff” – original branded comedy
Carnival of Stuff is the new online channel for Steve Kerper, creator of HBO’s cult series “Hardcore TV.” “Invasion,” the first of two new projects, is an animated series about two small but determined aliens ordered to conquer Earth, with decidedly mixed results. Kerper writes the series which is animated by Asterisk (SNL’s TV Funhouse). In March, Kerper and My Damn Channel debut “Bedtime Stories,” based on traditional children’s fables retold with illustrations in a very provocative way by host Grace Helbig. Carnival of Stuff episodes premiere every Thursday.

SIX MONTHS OLD

Posted in Johnny Rotten, My Damn Channel, New Media, New Series, Sex Pistols with tags , , on January 24, 2008 by Rob Barnett

 six-candles.jpg

Next week, My Damn Channel turns six months old. I’m still awake in the middle of every night feeding two more babies…our twins just passed three months.

THE NIGHT FEED blog was born on the night of the writers’ strike to add more interaction with the humans behind My Damn Channel. We’re about to add a slew of interactive features to all of the channels in two weeks. We’re continuing to build this machine to last.

We dreamed up the business to get free of as much old thinking as possible about how media is supposed to behave. My Damn Channel has patron saints like John Lydon, still young enough to get in the ring with anyone – still too honest to put up with even a hint of corporate crap.

The artists and producers of our 5 channels and everyone who works to put our original videos out every day have touched over 5 million people in the past 5 months.

Mark Wednesday, February 6th as the date to check the channels and the blog. The new look will debut. Then the following week of Feb 11 — 3 new channels join the line-up.
