Cinedigm has acquired Alpine Labs’ hybrid competition reality series Fight Of The Living Dead, the first original series acquisition for ‘Con TV, Cinedigm’s direct-to-consumer, streaming network targeting Comic-Con and pop culture fans. The announcement was made today by Cinedigm EVP Digital Networks Erick Opeka and Alpine Labs Co-Founder Kevin Abrams and partner Jamie Denenberg.
Company describes FOLTD as “an unprecedented mash-up of the reality and scripted genres” that “follows nine top YouTube stars as they attempt to survive the first 24 hours of a simulated zombie apocalypse. … With a potential launch viewership base of more than 10 million subscribers, FOTLD is well positioned to take full advantage of all avenues of distribution.”
Launching in late 2014, ‘Con TV will feature additional original series plus movies and TV series from Cinedigm’s library of more than 52,000 titles, live events and panels. The channel is a partnership between Cinedigm and Wizard World, the largest producer of Comic-Con and pop culture events nationally. Fight Of The Living Dead is produced by Alpine Labs and Revolver Picture Company.
