Maker Studios is partnering with branded content shop SA Studios Global to launch SanctionedTV, a new YouTube channel focusing on LA arts and culture as documented by renowned street photographer and filmmaker Estevan Oriol.

Oriol will serve as the creative head for all content on the channel, with a focus on documenting things that inspire him and his longtime collaborator, tattoo artist Mister Cartoon. “All of the series feature original content shot, produced, and directed completely in our style and our control,” said Oriol in a statement. Some channel content will feature the likes of Maker partner Snoop Dogg, as well as Travis Barker and Eminem, all of whom Oriol has worked with in the past.

The channel launches with three web series (Snoop Dogg appears in an episode of “Tattoo Series”):

Tattoo Stories”: Take a seat next to internationally renowned artists such as Mister Cartoon as they ink some of the world’s most-recognized personalities in some of the most underground and respected shops in the tattoo world. On any given day, Cartoon’s famous tattoo studio welcomes an endless stream of larger-than-life characters looking to mark a significant moment of their lives with a piece of timeless artwork. Our host Mr Trigz, long-time SA compadre and Sin City tattoo artist, invites viewers to pull up a seat next to artists including Cartoon, Jack Rudy, Macko and King Star as they create body art history. “Tattoo Stories” airs new episodes each Tuesday.

LA Woman”: Get up close and personal with legendary photographer/director Estevan Oriol’s most eye-popping subject; L.A. women. Follow a day-in-the-life on location with his celebrated muses, featuring candid conversations with models including Madzilla, Jeri Lee, Megan Daniels, Rosa Acosta and Brittany Dailey as they share the un-retouched versions of their life stories and experiences. New episodes of “LA Woman” air every other Wednesday.

Skidrow Stories”: Meet the people that rule “the ‘Row” in this series that follows some of Downtown Los Angeles’ most vibrant characters and extended members of the SA family as they drop local knowledge and vital history, and direct access to life on the streets of Skid Row. SAnctionedTV features new episodes of “Skidrow Stories” on alternating Thursdays.

Oriol and Cartoon will also team up to publish vlogs every Friday to answer viewer questions and comments.
