Veoh Networks (http://www.veoh.com), the leading pioneer in Internet Television, officially launched the Prom Queen channel today, a brand new scripted mystery series produced by Michael Eisner's independent production studio Vuguru, on Veoh.com. In addition to hosting the series, Veoh will deliver Prom Queen via embedded players on Promqueen.tv, vuguru.com, and Ellegirl.com.
On Sundays starting April 8, 2007, Veoh will also offer Vuguru's weekly long-format version of Prom Queen -- the week's seven episodes presented in one screening for fans.
Each episode of Prom Queen will be archived on the Prom Queen channel at Veoh.com, but fans will want to get the Veoh Player to automatically download full-screen, high quality versions of episodes as they become available.
"Veoh offers fans of Prom Queen a viewing experience that is unmatched by any other distribution outlet," said Michael Eisner. "The ability to watch every episode in full-screen and at high quality makes Veoh an ideal partner for our show."
The Veoh Player is a free, quick to download desktop application that can turn fans' hard drives into virtual DVRs, allowing users to download and save episodes of Prom Queen to watch at their leisure, either on- or offline. Its unique technology also allows users to subscribe to the series and have new episodes sent directly to their Player as soon as they are posted. Veoh's state-of-the-art peer-to-peer technology will allow Prom Queen fans to experience the series in a high-quality, full-screen format. Additionally, links to download the Veoh Player are available at Promqueen.tv and Ellegirl.com.
"Prom Queen's compelling plot and professional production qualities, combined with Veoh's peer-to-peer technology and easy-to-use Player, demonstrate the next evolution in how the world will view video content both on- and offline," said Dmitry Shapiro, CEO of Veoh Networks.
Prom Queen, the first production of Michael Eisner's new media studio Vuguru, is a scripted serialized mystery told over 80 episodes - each running 90 seconds long. Set against the final two months of the school year, Prom Queen has a blend of love, gossip, and betrayal - all of the twists and turns of high school leading up to the biggest night of any senior's life: prom night. The Prom Queen channel will debut one new episode a day.
