AOL debuts Road to Disrupt doc series
Produced by AOL Studios, all 12 episodes of the series are available for streaming in the US, UK and Canada.
AOL has launched The Road to Disrupt, a 12-episode documentary series that follows five startup companies that competed in last year’s San Francisco TechCrunch Disrupt Startup Battlefield.
Produced by AOL Studios, all three- to five-minute episodes of The Road to Disrupt are available for streaming in the US, UK and Canada. The digital companies featured in the series include Monsieur, Hammer & Chisel, Bitcovery, Ansa and Ossia, and they each discuss their products before presenting them in front of judges in the hopes of winning $50,000.
The show was announced at the Digital Content NewFronts in April as part of the company’s 2014-15 original programming slate. Several of the new and returning series showcased at the event have already premiered: In Short, Park Bench (which was nominated for an Emmy last week) and the second season of Hardwired.
GroupM signed a deal ahead of the NewFronts in the spring making its clients the sole Canadian sponsors of the 2014-15 slate of AOL Originals content in the country.
