The digital content studio, producer and distributor GeekNation has partnered with VIIVIIVII, a celebrity brand marketing agency, and Advanced Management, a full-service talent management company, to create original brand integrated content. The partnerships will give GeekNation the ability to cater to a new demographic of viewers, as well as bring a new pool of talent to create content around.
VIIVIIVII, led by CEO Ken Collis, brings a respectable cache of high-end clientele from the pop culture world, as well as a broad and deep pool of advertisers, whose brands will be integrated into GeekNation’s current and new shows including: Chakras by Didi; Magic Nutrition; Keeki Pure and Simple Skin Care; Sunjack and Thoughtful Foods. Collis, who also brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise with his advertising, marketing, and strategic corporate alignment networks, calls the relationship “an opportunity of a lifetime.” Clare Kramer actress (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Bring It On), Founder and CEO of GeekNation states “GeekNation’s service to existing clients and audience base will benefit from the marketing and branding capabilities VIIVIIVII garners, whilst providing a creative outlet and distribution platform for VIIVIIVII’s existing clients.”
Advanced Management is also playing a key role in original content creation by bringing a vast group of new talent, who are exceedingly recognizable in their respective genres, to the table. Partner Gary Ousdahl of Advanced Management states “the union between GeekNation and Advanced Management proves to be one of great success, with several shows in the works being developed around our clients.” Additionally, Advanced and VIIVIIVII have a long standing relationship, with many clients of Advanced being represented by VIIVIIVII. “The synergy between all parties will surely generate engaging content as well an influx of revenue stream,” states Advanced Management Manager Gary Reichman. In addition, Advanced Management’s team is supporting GeekNation with acquisitions and management.
“I am incredibly excited about our partnerships with both VIIVIIVII and Advanced Management,” states Oren Kamara, Head of Production & Acquisitions for GeekNation. These alliances are ideal for us, representing a monumental step toward long-term growth and longevity for all involved.”
In 2015 audiences can expect to well see over a dozen new original shows, many of which stem from these new partnership deals. GeekNation will premiere “Kamikaze Comedy with Jamie Kennedy”; “Girl on Girl with Danielle Harris”; “The Chavo Show with Chavo Guerrero Jr.” in January, while “GeekNation News with JoJo Wright and Manny Streetz.” will debut later this month.
