Just Do It: New Media Company Born Out Of WGA Strike Receives Web Recognition

I’ve reported regularly about the inspiring efforts behind Strike TV, one of the New Media companies born out of the WGA Strike. Yet there are many more writers, actors, directors and other talents believing that content is king, and producing professional productions directly for the Internet, and thus breaking free of the studio/network shackles. One of them, FM78.tv, was just named among the “The Ones To Watch” by Digitas, the Publis Group Ad Agency and media-buying giant, at The Digital New Fronts in NYC held during Internet Week ’09. The people behind FM78.tv are Justine Bateman, Peter Murrieta, Jill Kushner, and Alan Sereboff. (The last two names helped make those “Speechless” videos during the WGA strike). This promo for the company showed in the Digital New Fronts presentation and features actors Justine Bateman, Jeff Garlin, Buck Henry, Wallace Langham, and Judd Nelson.
