Uproxx Publisher Woven Digital Debuts First Original Series
Woven Digital, the publisher behind male-focused sites like Uproxx and BroBible, has launched its first original web series.
A documentary series, “Luminaries” will spotlights millennial inventors who are trying to create technologies to help their communities. The first episode features Easton LaChappelle, an inventor who’s using 3D printing to create robotic prosthetic limbs.
The initial batch of episodes will be published to Uproxx, a news and entertainment acquired by Woven last April. Each episode will be accompanied by an article expanding on the featured inventor and his or her work.
Woven announced “Luminaries” in December, when the company raised $18 million to grow its video business, as well as make further investments in its editorial, sales, and technology divisions.
Two other series are also in the works: “Uncharted,” which will profile emerging music stars, and “Underbelly,” which will shine a spotlight on illegal sports like underground fighting and street racing. All programming is produced by Woven Studios, an in-house unit that previously focused on producing branded video content for clients ranging from Sony Pictures Entertainment to Anheuser-Busch.Tags: Luminaries, uproxx, woven digital
