“I’m excited to create this opportunity and to be part of efforts to bring original programming that viewers’ control,” commented April Sheris, CEO of Upland Avenue Productions. “Marked by this partnership with independent writers and content creators, my hope is that this new network will spark a revolution in entertainment and encourage other media companies to bring YORBIT TV to their audiences.”
Samantha Wright, Vice President of Content Acquisition for YORBIT TV said, “April has a strong vision for YORBIT TV with long-term goals that supports her mission to become the most trusted name in original programing for independent writers”
The YORBIT TV platform will exist as an authority in dynamic original comedy content and a destination for conversations around music, artists, and their cultural background. It will be the first network to leverage the power of social media with tools to fuel the dialog and influence content in real time for the video-centric generation.
“I’m thrilled to be at the helm to usher in a completely new model that brings together the artist community, social media, and cutting edge technology,”
Upland Avenue Productions announced that YORBIT TV will launch in 2014.
