(February 27, 2008 - Los Angeles and Burbank, CA) – MySpace, the world’s most popular social network, and “TMZ,” the number one new, first-run syndicated television program of the 2007–2008 season, today announced a content partnership to bring new video content to the MySpace video platform, MySpaceTV (http://www.myspacetv.com). “TMZ” will populate a branded channel on MySpaceTV, providing MySpace with a window to feature select exclusive clips after they have already aired on the “TMZ” television program. “TMZ” will also provide a variety of non-exclusive clips (up to 15) on a weekly basis, featuring irreverent celebrity stories in “TMZ’s” unique voice. “MySpace is pleased to welcome ‘TMZ’ to the family of branded channels on MySpaceTV,” said Jason Kirk, VP of Marketing & Content for MySpaceTV. “The MySpace community consumes celebrity and entertainment news at a rapid pace, and ‘TMZ’s’ exclusive content perfectly complements the immersive community experience MySpace offers to our users.” “‘TMZ’ and MySpace both have a shared demographic and sensibility that makes this partnership between these two powerhouse brands so mutually beneficial,” said Brett Bouttier, Senior Vice President, Digital, Warner Bros. Television Group. “These types of strategic agreements give ‘TMZ’ the opportunity to expand distribution and bolster its status as the number one source for up-to-the-minute entertainment news on any platform, further increasing the relevance of a brand already known for being far ahead of the curve.” “TMZ” debuted last September with the Fox Owned Television Stations – including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago – serving as the show’s primary launch group. “TMZ” became the number one new first-run syndicated series of the season, and in its most recent week of national ratings (February 4–10, 2008), it delivered a 2.3 Household rating. “‘TMZ’ has become the go-to source for celebrity news in an incredibly short period of time,” said Alan Citron, General Manager, TMZ. “The MySpace partnership further extends our reach to the entertainment fan base that has responded so favorably to our content.” “TMZ” is the newest addition to a number of branded channels and content partners on MySpaceTV, including: BBC Worldwide, quarterlife, Roommates, Sony (Minisode Network), National Geographic, The New York Times, Reuters, and lifestyle outlets including Animation Show, Expert Village, Flow, FOX’s IGN Entertainment, Kush TV, LX.TV, Next New Networks, Octane TV, Ripe TV, Studio411, and Young Hollywood.
