Stay woke! Get Ready!
Soon they'll be looking for ideas from you! I quickly did a run through of all the content on my pipeline that I would want to pitch them. Then began brainstorming on possible content I'd want to create specifically for them. What about you? Do you have content right for them? The future of TV is changing y'all!

Facebook wants people to spend more time watching videos on its platform, as they already do on YouTube. Starting Aug. 10, it’s introducing a new video destination called “Watch,” which aims to do exactly that.
Watch is essentially a remake of Facebook’s video tab, available online and across Facebook’s apps for mobile devices and connected TVs. It will offer a library of longer form and episodic video shows made by publishers, celebrities and digital video creators. Shows on Facebook Watch will fall into two tiers: TV-sized half-hour programs launching on Facebook later this year and shorter “spotlight” series with episodes running between 5 and 15 minutes.
On Watch, Facebook will offer original shows from more than 30 content partners, including Tastemade, Mashable, Hearst, Attn, Bleacher Report, A+E, Refinery29 and Condé Nast Entertainment. Some partners have multiple shows funded by Facebook, including: Tastemade, which is producing six series including “Kitchen Little” and “Struggle Meal”; Mashable, which is doing two series, “What’s Your Mutt?” and “DIY Costume Squad”; Attn, which is producing “Health Hacks,” which will star Jessica Alba, and “We Need to Talk”; and Business Insider, which has four shows including “The Great Cheese Hunt” and “Rising Stars” with Neil deGrasse Tyson. Not all of these shows will be available from Day One, as some are scheduled to appear later this year, according to publishing sources.
