NEW FORM DIGITAL AND ABOVE AVERAGE PARTNER
FOR ORIGINAL SERIES, “ALGORHYTHM”
ALGORHYTHM TO DEBUT SIX EPISODES EXCLUSIVELY ON GO90™
Santa Monica, CA and New York, NY – March 24, 2016 – New Form Digital and Above Average announced today a deal to co-produce an original series, ALGORHYTM. The partnership brings together two of the leading creative production houses working in the digital video business today.
From multi-hyphenate creator Craig Benzine (of the successful YouTube channel “WheezyWaiter”), ALGORHYTHM tells the story of a repressed computer programmer who develops a piece of music calibrating software that can decide whether or not a song will be a commercial success. But can the software predict love?
The series was developed at New Form Digital as part of their Incubator Series. ALGORHYTHM wrapped production last month and will be premiering with 6 episodes on go90, a free mobile-first entertainment platform, later this year. Craig Benzine will star in, executive produce and compose original music for the series.
