New York, NYMarch 21, 2012 – Entertainment studio and distributor My Damn Channel today announced the details of My Damn Channel LIVE, the first daily, live, comedy show from YouTube’s original channels initiative.  Today also marks the re-launch of www.MyDamnChannel.com – the company’s destination for premium online video.  My Damn Channel LIVE takes the best ingredients from late night TV and brings them kicking and streaming live to the Internet. Airing weekdays at 4 p.m. ET beginning Wednesday, March 28, viewers can watch and interact with every episode of the series as it happens, or catch up on past episodes on demand at both www.MyDamnChannel.com/LIVE and www.YouTube.com/MyDamnChannel

 

Actor/Writer/Comedian Beth Hoyt has been tapped as host/writer of My Damn Channel LIVE. Beth will interview celebrity guests, interact with viewers in real-time and premiere videos from over 30 new My Damn Channel original comedy series.  The show is live Monday through Friday from a new studio inside the company's Hell’s Kitchen headquarters in New York.  Promo spots introducing Beth can be viewed now at www.MyDamnChannel.com/LIVE.  

 

My Damn Channel Founder/CEO Rob Barnett will executive produce My Damn Channel LIVE with a team led by Melissa Schneider, the showrunner and the company’s director of production.  Melissa’s team includes Head Writer Krister Johnson, Director Jack Ferry, and Associate Producer Julia Hoff. My Damn Channel Director of Talent and Audience Development, Molly Templeton, is building cross-promotional relationships and content partnerships with many other YouTube channels and talent to be featured on the show.

 

“The time is right to steal pages from TV’s playbook to reimagine a daily, live, hosted comedy show for the Internet,” said Barnett. “Beth Hoyt is an awesome find and a future star. Our producer, Melissa Schneider, has built an impressive team and a hot new home to showcase the original content and comedy talent we love.”  

 

My Damn Channel LIVE is one of more than 30 new original comedy series in production.  Executive produced by Barnett along with My Damn Channel Co-Founder/COO Warren Chao and Director of Content Jesse Cowell, these new series feature Internet stars and top talent from film and television.  The full slate of series will be announced in the weeks and months ahead.

 

Additionally, inspired by one of the most successful My Damn Channel original series, the mockutorial web-phenomenon You Suck at Photoshop, comes an all-new edutainment program. You Rock at Photoshop! will debut during the Wednesday, March 28 premiere of My Damn Channel LIVE
