Participant Media-owned content studio SoulPancake has entered into a content partnership with online food and travel video channel Tastemade to co-produce and co-distribute three new projects.
The deal includes three long-form, unscripted television projects: Board of Dating, which takes a page out of the business world to provide single daters with a board of dating to help make the tough choices to find their matches; Move Today offers individuals at the end of their ropes the chance to move to a new city, where a new job and new social opportunities await, and after one week, they can choose whether this is the life they want; and Wild Therapy, where individuals are taken into nature in an attempt to mend broken relationships.
The new slate kicks off tomorrow (Oct. 6) with Board of Dating, which premieres on Facebook Watch and the SoulPancake YouTube channel. Move Today will premiere Nov. 1 on the Tastemade Home Facebook Page and the SoulPancake YouTube channel. Details of Wild Therapy‘s release will be announced at a later date.
SoulPancake’s existing slate of cross-platform projects include Kid President, My Last Days, SoulPancake on OWN and Impress Me, while Tastemade’s cross-platform credits include Kitchen Little, Weekend Refresh and Behind the Dish.
“At SoulPancake, our focus is to create storytelling that inspires and emotionally connects with viewers,” said Sarah North (pictured, left), head of television at SoulPancake, in a statement. “Our strong track record of moving audiences between our digital and linear TV projects, along with Tastemade’s strength in programming and our combined reach, creates an ideal co-production partnership.”
“Both companies have a deep passion for producing high quality, engaging and entertaining content and we look forward to telling new and memorable stories together,” added Oren Katzeff (right), Tastemade’s head of programming.
