Verizon and Hearst-owned digital media company Complex Networks is launching four series on Facebook’s Watch platform.
The first series, Taste Buds, will debut today (Oct. 5), while Price the Hype, Dumb as Hell and Everything’s for Sale will launch later this Fall.
“Launching original series on Facebook and tapping into the Watch ecosystem further extends Complex Networks content across platforms and continues our commitment to experimenting with new formats and platforms to build community and engagement with our audience,” said Rich Antoniello, CEO of Complex Networks, in a statement.
He added that the series are meant to tap into the culture interests of the Complex audience.
In Taste Buds, critic and TV personality Daym Drops goes on wild food adventures in his car with special guests riding shotgun.
Elsewhere, Price The Hype is a game show in which contestants compete, proving their knowledge through trivia and challenges, with both money and sneakers on the line.
In Dumb as Hell, Complex hosts take a closer look at the silly side of pop culture, while the five-episode Everything’s for Sale follows a sneaker expert who uses his footwear knowledge to pitch the “latest and greatest” shoes to unsuspecting shoppers.
