Los Angeles-based digital media company Ripple Entertainment is bringing the stories of female drummers to the fore in a new series.
Drum Like a Girl will celebrate trailblazing women in the world of music. Part performance and part autobiography, each episode will focus on one selected drummer, charting her move into music and how she made a name for herself in a scene dominated by men. Each episode will also feature a curated playlist by the featured drummer.
The half-hour music documentary program will be executive produced by Patty Schemel (pictured), the drummer of alternative rock band Hole.
Prior to founding Ripple Entertainment, CEO Gayle Gilman was EVP of digital content at FremantleMedia North America, where she launched the digital studio Tiny Riot.
Meanwhile, Jason Ziemianski, co-founder and chief strategy officer with Ripple, was formerly head of community and monetization at MCN Big Frame. He worked with Gilman at FremantleMedia, where they managed such initiatives as The Pet Collective, Munchies – a joint venture with Vice– and Buzzr.
