AOL is getting into the late-night game, with Kevin Smith, Adam Carolla, and Kevin Pollak joining forces for a nightly online video series.
All three men already have popular online programs or podcasts: Smith — who has had a busy week at Sundance — has his Smodcast Network, Pollak has Chat Show and there’s The Adam Carolla Show. Now AOL is teaming with those existing shows to create a daily video series.
AOL is aggressively moving to be the leader in the next gen of TV. Big bets on branded video entertainment. They've got the ability to really move strongly here: Great brands, great distribution, strong base of ad support.
