‘Squaresville’ Creator Matt Enlow Leaves Comedy Central
Matt Enlow, creator of the popular IAWTV Award-winning comedy series “Squaresville,” has left his position within the digital content division of Comedy Central. With more free time, Enlow hopes to focus more on writing and directing projects across all mediums.
“My true passion is in writing and directing,” says Enlow. “At a certain point I just had to make the decision on what path I wanted to follow, and I realized now was the time to make that happen.”
Enlow created “Squaresville” during his time at Comedy Central, which he joined as a site editor back in 2009. But as he describes it, with more opportunities coming up — especially those that might require a bigger time commitment than “Squaresville” needed — he wants to make himself available to say yes.
Enlow politely declined to disclose which projects he’s currently eyeing, though he’s “exploring all avenues” in terms of traditional media versus new media. “I never would want to forget or move away from the internet,” he says. “I still passionately believe in online storytelling and the opportunities that new media gives. There’s a tremendous and supportive community which I will always be a part of.”
Since joining Comedy Central in 2009, Enlow has worked his way up the digital team at the network. He was one of the founders of CC:Studios, an in-house digital content development and production arm focused on creating original web content as well as stuff supporting the network’s on-air lineup.
