You don’t just have to be Funny or Die, you could also be Funny and on Sony’s new comedy channel. Dubiously dubbed C-Spot, Sony TV is launching a brand new channel. But don’t call on your cable or satellite provider to get you access, this content will appear right here in your browser.
The “channel” will run 52 weeks a year and appear at Crackle, , AOL Video, Hulu, Verizon Wireless’ V Cast and even direct to Sony BRAVIA TVs on the BRAVIA Internet Video Link. One great thing about getting your television through the internet is you have a wealth of easy access to the content.
“We’ve tapped very talented individuals, both established and up-and-coming, to create a spectrum of original web series that showcase irreverent characters and stories,” said Sean Carey, Senior Executive VP of Sony Television.
For the first 13 week season, this what you can expect to find on the C-Spot:
Monday – Hot, Hot Los Angeles, a spin on the rich and famous teen drama series’ we grew up on. Overindulgence and combining words to make up new catchphrases are the order of the day.
Tuesday – The Writers Room, follow comedian Kevin Pollack into the writers room of a fictional late-night talk show. See what a group of people could possibly go through to try and make Jay Leno funny.
Wednesday – Gaytown, a straight man in a gay town. Heh.
Thursday – The Roadents, animated series about guys on the road in a 1983 Winnebago. Ah, that’s a nice vintage.
Friday – Gorgeous Tiny Chicken Machine Show, the seemingly Japanese talk show inspired web series returns with 10 new episodes
Weekend – The Best of Penn Says, Penn Jillette talks about things. He makes sense most of the time, but sometimes it’s just a rambling of whatever is immediately on his mind.
