The issues are tightened on Turner Media and, as Deadline reports, is the latest victim of Super Deluxe Studios.
Super Deluxe Launched as a Digital Comedy Hub for the Turner Broadcasting System Back 2006 served as a platform for talented-but-green creators who want to make a name for themselves. With a pronounced bow to alternative comedy, Super Deluxe released early videos from Zach Galifianakis, Maria Bamford, Chelsea Peretti and Tim and Eric.
After Super Deluxe, Turner resumed in 201
5 as a “tech incubator”, still producing comedy ideas, but chasing the same mobile ubiquity as his Funny or Die comrades. The refurbished studio coincided with a new wave of creators, including Joanna the Scammer, Jamie Loftus, and warped political comedy wizard Vic Berger. In addition, it released regular series such as Cheap Thrills and Mansplaining .
Super Deluxe had been branched out with a series order on Netflix for a Stephan Gaghan-produced supernatural drama, Chambers . (No word about whether this series will continue.)
Axingen is another consolidation mark at Time Warner, after the end of the week earlier by his Korean drama drama DramaFever. It seems that the ongoing trend of throwing money against becoming the next monolithic content provider has the unfortunate side effect of pinning out the (strange) beloved little guy.
