Hip Hop Global Media & Entertainment has announced plans to debut the Hip Hop 1-TV and Hip Hop 2-Movie cable networks next year. The two will also work with the Hip Hop Hall of Fame to co-develop and produce co-branded content for television shows and movie projects for major distribution and syndication.
"This deal has been in the making for a few years now, and with the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum becoming a reality, Hip Hop Global Media & Entertainment will serve as a content marketing and production consultant to the facility and its broadcast studio that is in the works," said Julian Ramui, vice president of programming.
Hip Hop 1-TV is a 24 hour all hip-hop television network channel. The channel will feature daily shows, and weekly programmes, themed video segments and annual television specials. The network will be an artist and celebrity-driven themed programmer that is geared to both the national and international hip-hop audiences. Shows include breaking news, feature stories, interviews, live events, behind the scenes all-access and on-site remote broadcasts with recording artists.
Hip Hop 2-Movie Channel is a 24 hour all-hip-hop movie channel. Original films, documentaries and biographies will be produced in house, and in collaboration with artists, labels and Hollywood studios. There will be all access shows, interviews, how to get in the biz, and 'on-the-set' show segments that will make up non-film programming on the network.
