Tina Brown Preps Daily Beast TV

Original video set to launch in Nov.

Tina Brown’s recent forays on the Web and in print have so far had uncertain results. Can she make it on TV? We’ll soon see. Daily Beast TV is getting ready to launch in November.

The venture has been described as an online talk show. A rep for the Newsweek Daily Beast Co. said Daily Beast TV would be a mix of original videos like the “Ask Andrew Anything” feature that Andrew Sullivan launched in September. The rotoscope-style videos feature the Beast blogger answering reader questions like “When did you truly feel American?” and “When will pot be legalized?” It has a raw and spontaneous feel, but it's a departure from the Beast's current video offerings, which consist mainly of repurposed TV news clips from CNN, ABC, and the like.
