-- Reverse Content, a media company, plans to make a push into digital media with original programming. They are entering a five-year deal, worth eight figures, with media producer E'Ian West. The deal will include scripted and unscripted formats. All content created and developed by Mr. West will be used globally to build a solid foundation for Reverse Content's name in digital media. Initial focus will be placed with the company's YouTube deal and other streaming services. E'Ian West has concept creation, development, and major network pitching in his wheelhouse.
"The digital age has proven to be a constant direction of growth. We feel with so many paid and free platforms in need of digital content, this should be our main focus. YouTube is a perfect example with over 1.3 billion users searching for media daily. New and old streaming services are looking to compete, so I feel we are on a level playing field in terms of the ability to provide content. This is the reason we aren't focusing on paid versus free. We believe good content will be shared between users, searched for and even recommended."
- Daniel Stevens, Reverse Content
"This entire process has been very exciting. I have had the opportunity to meet and share my ideas with a team that automatically understood my views and style of content. I think it's fair to say television has lost a lot of ground, and digital platforms are here to stay. More than anything, I enjoy being able to commit time and energy into the creation of fresh new content. I do appreciate that I will still have the option to take my ideas to television and cable, which I have done for years. This is just a new avenue with a new set of tires. I believe in the business model and can't wait to get to work." - E'Ian West, Montage Media Production Company
