Maker Studios is set to launch short-form comedy series Crashpad on YouTube, Maker.tv and Music Choice TV on Dec. 5.
Starring comedian Bart Baker, the series -- a dozen, 11-minute episodes -- will run on Fridays at 9 p.m. and feature clips, games and talk show bits across Maker.tv, Music Choice Play and Music Choice On Demand. Four-minutes segments are set to run on Baker's YouTube channel.
The show is co-produced by Maker and Drama 3/4.
There will be appearances by digital notables Amy Pham, Iman “AlphaCat” Crosson, Ed Bassmaster, Sam Macaroni, Timothy DeLaGhetto, Shane Dawson, Lisa Shwartz, DeStorm, King Bach and Jesse Wellens of Prank vs. Prank.
“Teaming up with both Music Choice and Jukin for a cross-platform program is hugely exciting,” said Bonnie Pan, executive vice president of programming at Maker Studios. “We are thrilled to collaborate on a innovative new comedy format that features some of the biggest digital stars today—we can’t wait to see what audiences both new and old will think.”
Noted Damon Williams, vice president of programming at Music Choice: ''Securing the U.S. TV distribution rights for CrashPad continues to demonstrate Music Choice’s commitment to bringing the best programming to our network for millennials. Maker has been a great partner for us this year and we are very excited to extend it with this deal.”
Earlier this year, Maker and Music Choice announced a distribution partnership bringing a number of digital stars across all Music Choice platforms, including Music Choice Play, Music Choice Music Channels and Music Choice On Demand. In 2014 Music Choice featured a month-long takeover of Bart Baker’s comedic music parodies and began access to over 500 hours of Maker fare.
