Rumble to Distribute FMN’s ‘Celebrity Webchefs’
The short-form series, which will debut on Rumble.com on June 9, brings in celebrity guests from Hollywood to prepare dishes and provide cooking tips for “modern meal ideas.”
Guests include Alan Thicke (“Growing Pains”) and Gretchen Rossi (“Real Housewives of Orange County”). “We just completed the filming with my good friend Jane Seymour and are lining up Kevin Costner, Jermaine Jackson, Kevin Sorbo, comedian Dane Cook, and several others to be named at a later date,” adds Chris Breed, FMN’s co-founder and chief talent officer.
In addition to Rumble.com, the series will be syndicated to the company’s distribution partners including MSN, Yahoo, Xbox, Telegraph UK, Sun Media, and Post Media, among others.
That said, Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski says the company will also manage the series’ presence on YouTube.
In January, Rumble brought in Vimeo and CollegeHumor co-founder Josh Abramson as an advisor to help the company build its presence as an “alternative” to YouTube for online video producers and creators. Today, the company touts a distribution network, which includes Rumble.com, that totals more than 100 million streams per month.Tags: Chris Pavlovski, cooking, digital distribution, food, Foodie Media Network, MSN, Rumble, Xbox, Yahoo!, youtube
