New York based agency Peleton Entertainment has signed on production and post company IKA Collective for long-form television representation.

IKA Collective, headed by Ian Karr and also based in New York, debuted its original non-fiction web series, The Midnight Archive, last year. The series has recently been picked up by AOL’s 5min Media in a non-exclusive syndication deal.

Peleton Entertainment president Rob Miller said that IKA Collective’s strong short-form content background and technical know-how, coupled with its storytelling ability, “have provided them with the necessary skills to succeed in the reality world.

“Our goal is to help them navigate the non-scripted space, work with them on their development, and allow them to do what they do best – produce great content,” he added.

The Midnight Archive web series, created by IKA collective writer/director Ronni Thomas, explores some of the least explored reaches of New York City and finds some of its most eccentric characters. The entire archive of the series can be seen here.
