18 Mar,2016



On the eve of YouTube FanFest, YouTube announced that content partners Culture Machine, OML, Qyuki, and The Viral Fever (TVF) were set to launch four new original properties on YouTube.


First out of the gate in April will be #LaughterGames, where nine comedy creators will launch their own comedy web series, featuring among others, YouTube comedians such as East India Comedy, Put Chutney and Kenny Sebastian, who are also starring in today’s YouTube FanFest. In the coming months, Culture Machine will be launching Beauty Hunt, a beauty/style-centric program, while OML will launch season 2 of its successful Comedy Hunt, the search for India’s next top comedy act. Qyuki will launch Jammin’, a show featuring Bollywood composers and YouTube music creators, while veteran web show creators TVF will be launching a search for the next generation of web series creators. In the South,  we will also see a Tamil Comedy Hunt with Vision Time, a Telugu Comedy Hunt with ETV, and Katha, a Tamil/Telugu web series property, later in the year.


Satya Raghavan, Head of Entertainment Content at YouTube India, said, “India has undergone a content creator revolution. Over the last few years, Indian YouTube creators have gained millions of new subscribers and have taken over the imagination of the youth in India. In our view 2015 was a breakout year for the young industry and the ecosystem has really evolved in India, with mobile driving massive growth for online video consumption. Now, we’re seeing online creators break open the gates for a whole new kind of entertainment for Indians online, with advertisers looking to tap into this space in a meaningful way.”
