On October 16th, Webisodes Network is launching Away From Keyboard (AFK): a weekly talk show hosted by YouTube celeb Jimmy Wong.
Jimmy currently stars on hit series Video Game High School, and has had his own popular You Tube channels for the past 5 years. AFK will cover trending Internet topics; featuring interviews with top YouTube personalities, absurd games and a fresh string of jokes and bits, filmed in front of a live studio audience.
Webisodes Network is a complimentary alternative to YouTube: a site designed to host only the highest-quality user-generated content, on an uncluttered platform. Webisodes Network makes it easy and comfortable to chain-watch online series, and the promise of site-wide quality allows viewers to browse new shows without apprehension. It is similar to the experience of watching HBO, Netflix or Hulu, but focused on satisfying today's short-form viewing habits. The site is mobile optimized, and can be enjoyed on any platform; computer, tablet or phone.
AFK is one of several Webisodes Network Originals that will be launching this year and next. The site’s in-house production team creates a number of budgeted series to release as site exclusives, including popular web series Top Decking, which is going into production on Season Two later this month.
