| 22 October 2014
Young Hollywood, a celebrity-focused digital network built for Millennials, has unveiled the next phase of its expansion, which includes the production of more than 500 original hours of programming annually.
This includes the premiere of eight new original half-hour series and the launch of Young Hollywood TV, a newly created over-the-top (OTT) network devoted to premium celebrity- and lifestyle-related long-form programming. Young Hollywood TV also said that it plans to expand into several new content verticals in the months ahead including reality and scripted programming.
"For several years, Young Hollywood has given millennials short-form exclusive celebrity interviews with the biggest names in Hollywood along with unparalleled behind-the-scenes access," said RJ Williams, Young Hollywood founder and CEO. "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."
The network's short-form programming has amassed more than two billion views to date, and is available on over 20 platforms and devices, including YouTube, AOL, Yahoo, Twitter and Younghollywood.com.
