Maker Studios is prepping for its television debut. The multi-channel network with a talent roster of more than 55,000 YouTube channels worldwide that was recently acquired by Disney for upwards of $950 million will use its new multinational mass media parent company’s assets to its advantage.
Maker announced at Cannes, France’s global entertainment market MIPCOM that it’s set to air a “Maker branded special” in October 2014 on the Disney Channel as part of the cable network’s annual programming event “Monstober”. The special will be comprised of two 11-minute episodes airing together as a standard 22-minute TV program and will feature an “unscripted clip series hosted by top digital and traditional talent” showcasing the best “Halloween-themed content from the Maker network” in addition to “vignettes and sketches” produced specifically for the Disney Channel.
