Newsy Rolls Out Original Series and Brand Studio at Digital Content NewFronts

Newsy debuted three new original series set to launch this summer at its first ever Digital Content NewFront on May 9th in New York City. At the standing-room-only event, the company also introduced its Brand Studio, which was created to deliver custom and native video advertising solutions to brands and agencies.

Brands can take advantage of exclusive sponsorship opportunities with the Newsy Original Series beginning this year. The series are designed to offer high-quality video content for advertisers looking to engage with an affluent, highly educated millennial audience. The summer 2016 lineup includes:

“Asking For a Friend,” which investigates — with a heavy dose of humor — taboo questions about subjects such as the complexities of polyamorous relationships; how to deal with an ex; what it’s like to be a woman using a dating app; and how to know if you have low testosterone. View the “Asking For a Friend” trailer here.

 

“Americanize Me,” which looks at how generations of immigrants in the U.S. have added their native foods to the American menu. This series celebrates American diversity through a melting pot of food — from cashew chicken to chimichangas to fortune cookies. View the “Americanize Me” trailer here.

 

 

“The Blind Spot,” which covers the history that millennials lived through but wasn’t covered in school. While an entire generation was being born or teetering on toddlerhood, major events of the mid-’80s and ’90s were happening that continue to shape relevant discussions today. From Rodney King to the Oklahoma City bombing, this series uncovers stories from the younger generation’s history blind spot. View a trailer for “The Blind Spot” here.
