Facebook In Talks For Scripted Shows

Facebook In Talks For Scripted Shows”

Facebook is preparing to bring original programming to its vast user base, and it seems the social network is throwing down some big bucks to make it happen.

The company now plans to launch original programming by late summer.

The major talent agencies that could be in the loop include Creative Artists Agency, United Talent Agency, William Morris Endeavor and International Creative Management Partners. At that stage, Facebook had just begun talks with potential partners.

Earlier this month it emerged Facebook was funding a project led by Ricky Van Veen, co-founder of comedy site College Humor.

According to a recent report from the Wall Street Journal, however, it sounds like Facebook is now willing to raise the high-end episode budgets even further.

In terms of content, the company has apparently said it wants to avoid a number of genres and topics, including "shows about children and young teens as well as political dramas, news and shows with nudity and rough language". The company is expected to release episodes in a traditional manner, instead of dropping an entire season in one go like Netflix Inc and Amazon.com Inc, WSJ reported.

While the majority of the shows Facebook will produce aren't yet known, the company reportedly picked up the now-defunct MTV series Loosely Exactly Nicole and a reality series titled Last State Standing.

As well as high budget TV shows, Facebook is also said to be interested in launching scripted shows "in the mid-to-high six-figure-per-episode range".
