New Form Announces The Fine Brothers As Executive Producers For Newest Pilot TALKING TO MYSELF
December 13, 2017 - New Form (NF), a leading digital entertainment studio, announced today that Fine Brothers Entertainment (FBE) (+30 Million Subscribers & +9 Billion Views) served as the Executive Producers for Talking To Myself, the winning pilot concept from creator Eric Jaffe, as part of New Form's "Pitch to Pilot" Campaign.Presented by Dunkin' Donuts, Talking To Myself brings together two regular people with different backgrounds who both share the same celebrity name, Selena Gomez. The two individuals think they're going to meet the well-known singer/actress but instead meet each other, and through questions and games get to know one another and find out how they are alike, how they are different, and what situations they've both gotten into because of their shared famous name. Talking To Myself debuted on the Fine Brothers Entertainment (FBE) Youtube channel today, December 13, 2017. "New Form is excited about the inventive pilot concept from Eric Jaffe and is thrilled to have joined forces with Fine Brothers Entertainment as they have an impressive track record of producing quality digital content with a great creative vision," said Kathleen Grace, CEO of New Form. "We think their audience is really going to love this pilot and we're excited to share this project with them." "Conversation-starting content and social experiments that are both comedic and full of heart are part of FBE's DNA, and we're thrilled to be working with New Form and TBS who are equally committed to producing high quality, premium content," said Brandie Tucker, Head of Alternative Television for FBE. The "Pitch to Pilot" Campaign was presented at the New Form Creator Lounge at VidCon 2017 in partnership with TBS and Dunkin' Donuts Coffee where emerging creators had the opportunity to pitch their original scripted concepts. The Creator Lounge was fueled by Dunkin' Donuts where VidCon attendees were able to sample their newest cold coffee beverages. Talking To Myself also features a Dunkin' Donuts integration in the pilot. The top finalists from the Creator Lounge were selected based on an online fan vote and the winner was chosen by key executives from all participating partners. With the addition of the Fine Brothers, the campaign now features an exciting four-way creative partnership between New Form, TBS, Dunkin' Donuts and Fine Brothers Entertainment. About New Form
