Degrassi goes online with The N
Viacom-owned nighttime teen channel The N is launching its first original online-only series next month, a spin-off from the popular Degrassi franchise.
Degrassi Minis will go live on The N website on February 3, comprising two- to three-minute shorts featuring characters from the TV series in new scenes and storylines.
A total of eight Degrassi ‘webisodes’ have been made by Epitome Pictures, giving fans of the series additional insight into on-screen plots as well as entirely unrelated material. Characters who are no longer in the show will also be revived.
“For our teen audience, primetime is as much about the web as it is about television, so we are very excited to present The N’s first original narrative content made exclusively for The-N.com,” said Tom Ascheim, executive VP and general manager.
