We're proud to announce the launch of a brand new online comedy channel called Hoot Comedy, set up by award-winning writers & comedians James Rawlings and Ben Bond as a place for the UK's top comedy talent to experiment with new characters and new ideas, free from restrictive guidelines.
Our online PR and social media strategy will help to raise awareness of Hoot Comedy, drive traffic to the site and get influential online communities talking about the channel.
This is just one in a number of comedy broadcast projects we've been working on for brands including Channel 4, E4, Sony Pictures and Columbia Pictures.
Hoot Comedy launches with a number of new series: 'Sherlock Holmes and the Mystery of the Turkish Spoon' was written by Ben Bond & James Rawlings and directed by BAFTA winning animation director Jim le Fevre. The series follows Watson and Sherlock travelling the globe, taking as many drugs as possible to solve the mystery of the Turkish Spoon.
Fresh from Fresh from the huge success of BBC2's Home Time, Emma Fryer and long time collaborator (and co-writer of Home Time) Neil Edmond present their latest creation on Hoot Comedy called ‘The Saint' which follows intimate SKYPE-jacked conversations and finds out first hand just how altruistic some people really are.
Double Perrier winning team Laura Solon and Bill Willbond are behind the new series ‘Peter and Allison' which follows the middle class couple suffering in the Credit Crunch. Peter's lost his job at his bank so they try to get themselves out of a perfect financial storm by becoming the internet's answer to Richard and Judy advising the many middle class people in the same boat how to get through it.
Over the coming months Hoot Comedy will bring brand new comedy, for free, every week with established and new talent alike.
