“TV can be better. Much better.
Want to see more than just reality television? Tired of news outlets that cover celebrity trials instead of tackling critical questions? Bored with shows that don’t challenge or engage you? So are we.
The sad reality of TV is that young adult viewers are coveted, but not really asked to participate. You can be characters, but rarely creators. We want to change all that. And with your help, we will create shows that are bold, irreverent, intelligent and relevant to the passions and experiences of our audience.
We are an independent media company led by former Vice President Al Gore, entrepreneur Joel Hyatt and a growing team of industry professionals and young creatives. We are coming together around a common mission: to share the world’s most dominant media platform – television – with people who want an outlet for their creativity, their voices heard and their perspectives valued.
Last May we acquired an existing television network that is currently available in almost 20 million U.S. homes. In 2005 we will debut our new programming on this network, shows shaped by a new generation of media-savvy creators.”
