Ego TV and Iron Sink Media, the creators of "Rommates", have debuted "Malibu U.", a new Web drama that follows the lives or sorority members at the trendy Malibu University in California. Each episode from the initial six-episode run is approximately five minutes in length, and the producers have created a series of six cast member video blogs.
"Ego TV is ecstatic to launch 'Malibu U.' The Web is the perfect place to demonstrate this type of interactive storytelling. 'Malibu U.' is already popular with the Web audience and with advertisers," said Ego TV President and "Malibu U." Executive Producer Jimmy Hutcheson. To date, "Malibu U." has garnered the attention of 75,000 viewers daily.
Scott Zakarin of Iron Sink Media said, "Working with Ego TV on 'Malibu U.' was a really fun experience. We strived for a modern version of 80's kitsch movies, that today's Internet audience should eat up with a spoon. I wish my parents would have sent me to a school like 'Malibu U.'"
"Roommates" from Iron Sink Media was the successful branded entertainment Web drama on MyspaceTV. The series integrated Ford and Fresh View Contact Lenses. The current Ego TV advertisers include Subway, Pontiac, Showtime and MSN.
