When we recently spoke with blip.tv CEO Kelly Day, she talked about the competitive landscape. Just a few weeks later, at the turn of her one-year anniversary with the company, she has cleverly tilted that landscape by partnering with My Damn Channel.
The two leading Web series broadcasters are joining forces for new seasons of the My Damn Channel hits Wainy Days and Daddy Knows Best as well as a pair of new original series currently under development. The latter tandem will be shown exclusively for 30 days on the two company websites. And that’s not all. From today’s announcement:
For the first time, select series from the My Damn Channel library (going back to 2007) will be available on Blip, including premium programming never before been seen by the Blip audience… “We want people who love comedy to discover great new shows and share them with their friends, and this partnership helps us do that,” said Day.
Wainy Days is all about David Wain‘s (slightly) fictionalized romantic misadventures, while Daddy Knows Best – My Damn Channel’s most viewed original series – stars Steve Rannazzisi as a lying hubby. Under the new deal, Blip and My Damn Channel will also premiere a fifth series next month, Ask My Mom!, starring Maria Bamford.
