Oxygen Clicks Into Digital Media For New Shows

Female-targeted network Oxygen has reached into the world of digital media for the basis of  three new series in development, the network said Thursday.

The series includes Social Girls, which follows the lives of influential and successful social media millennials; Review Rage, which reenacts online reviews told from both sides; and Love to Hate, which profiles the fall of celebrities in the digital age.

“These projects tap into the various ways that our young, savvy, multicultural female audience interacts with social media,” said Cori Abraham, Senior Vice President Development & International Oxygen Media in a statement.  “We hope to shed a fun and positive light on how this generation flourishes in the digital age.”
