Maker will create four original series for Morgan Spurlock’s fledgling channel smartish.
Spurlock’s Warrior Poets will co-own the series featuring digitally native and traditional talent.
“Smartish shows will make you laugh and make you think and I’m a real believer that if you can make someone laugh then you can make someone listen,” said Spurlock.
“Through this partnership with Maker, we are going to create the premiere destination for thought-provoking and entertaining original content on the worldwide interwebs.”
“Having worked with Morgan for many years, I couldn’t be more excited to team up on a premium content slate at Maker,” said Maker chief content officer Erin McPherson (pictured).
“Morgan has a unique ability to create poignant, digital-first content which is compelling across platforms, and have no doubt the smartish series will also translate to linear distribution.”
The four short-run series are: previously announced Consider The Source and How To Win At Life and new entries Spark and Everything Must Go.
