Alloy Digital isn't the only multi-channel network making news today. Fullscreen has announced the hiring of Larry Shapiro, formerly of Creative Artists Agency (CAA) to head its talent department. At CAA, Shapiro established a video game department and worked with many of the top game designers in the world. His experience in the video game industry may signal Fullscreen's expansion into that category on YouTube. Though the McN has not yet snapped up many top creators in that area, doing so would be wise given gaming's massive popularity on YouTube. Shapiro also previously worked at Fourth Wall Studios, the innovative online video platform that won an Emmy for its show Dirty Work. Fourth Wall, despite counting big names like MysteryGuitarMan among its creators, abruptly halted production on its original series late last year. "Our focus has always been on empowering our content creators to succeed," said Fullscreen CEO George Strompolos »
