For Your Imagination’s Web Video Upfront Tonight: All About Verticals

20 November 2008 2:14 PM, PST | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

New York-based web studio For Your Imagination is hosting its Spring 2009 Web Video Upfront tonight as it looks to lock up sponsorships and show off its latest slate of original web series. A number of new series have been announced including as well as their current hits like do-it-yourself fave, DadLabs, eco-conscious The Green House and the recently-launched comedy web series portal Axis of Comedy which currently boasts Goodie Bag TV, Break A Leg, The Burg, Kyle Piccolo, Abigail's Teen Diary, The Patrice O'Neal Show and The Retributioners. New this year will be a move towards content verticals for its web series slate, much like what fellow NY-based web studio NextNewNetworks has been building. With comedy, green and parenting verticals already in place, Fyi is rolling out two new ones — Geq, a personal finance network, and Glampede, for style and fashion content. »

Tubefilter Tuesday Picks - November 11, 2008

11 November 2008 4:31 PM, PST | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

With the world's attention turned away from the political blood-sport of election season, we at Tubefilter News don't want to leave you hanging—this week's picks are all about conflict. From playful sparring, to full on combat, these shows aren't afraid to expose the truth — we all love a good fight: Big Book of Lies, Goodie Bag TV, and Break A Leg. Big Book of Lies Andrew Leeds' and Dave Lampson's delightful 'Woody Allen'-esque series, Big Book of Lies, is set to the backdrop of Lampson's home away from home, Buenos Aires. No topic is sacred or safe, from the duo's charmingly irreverent and occasionally witty prose turned dialogue. This episode, one of our favorites, matches Andrew (played by Andrew) against his love-interest-cum-sparring-partner Laila (Rebecca Whitehurst). »

Brooke Shields to Undergo Foot Surgery

27 March 2008 7:10 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

As they say on Broadway, "Break a leg." Perhaps Brooke Shields took that too literally? Now that Lipstick Jungle is on hiatus, the 42-year-old star will undergo surgery to correct a chronic foot injury she sustained while performing on stage, the New York Post's Page Six reported Thursday. "Yes, she is having surgery on a tendon," her rep told the paper. "It's from an old injury she got from dancing on Broadway. It's the second surgery she's had on it." Shields's credits on the Great White Way include the revivals of Chicago, Wonderful Town, Grease and Cabaret. –Caris DavisLike this story? »
