Over-the-top (OTT) streaming service Flipps Jan. 15 said it has inked a distribution deal with Vuguru LLC, the multimedia studio started by former Walt Disney CEO Michael Eisner.
Under the deal, two of Vuguru's digital series will soon be available for streaming via Flipps’ app for iOS and Android devices as well as Internet-connected televisions from Samsung, Sony, Panasonic, LG and Philips, plus Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Apple TV.
Programming includes "Prom Queen," which follows the lives of the students at fictional Edward Adams High as they struggle to find love, popularity, and happiness in a place that is cursed with tragedy, obsession and jealousy. The series stars Katy Stoll, Sean Hankinson, David Loren and Laura Howard.
"Back on Topps" is a satirical behind-the-scenes look into one of the world's most recognizable sports brands. When The Topps Co. falls into new ownership, sport-loving twin brothers and heirs to the Topps fortune, Leyland and Leif Topps (Jason and Randy Sklar), must navigate the murky corporate waters of their new work environment and prove to their new boss they are valuable to the sports card world.
"Bringing online original programming to the connected home is a natural extension of the Flipps brand and Vuguru is a leader in the space,” Flipps CEO Kosta Jordanov said in a statement.
