MySpace Launches Game Show ‘BFF,’ Streams Neil Young Album2 Apr, 2009 By: Billy Gil
MySpace April 2 debuted a new Web game show series called “BFF,” which tests how well best friends know each other. The series encourages users to submit videos on the “BFF” MySpace page at www.myspace.com/bff, after which selected contestants will be flown to New York to compete in the show for prizes. It is produced by City Lights Media, former fashion executive David Rubin and former Miramax executive and film producer Meryl Poster (The Cider House Rules, Shakespeare in Love) and is hosted by NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” finalist Amy Schumer.
Separately, MySpace will exclusively premiere Neil Young’s new album, Fork in the Road. Fans can stream the album for free at www.myspace.com/neilyoung before its April 7 street date.
