AOL also gives second seasons to “Hardwired 2.0″ and “The Future Starts Here”
AOL has renewed four of its original web series for the company’s AOL On Network premium video platform, including Richie’s “#CandidlyNicole” and “city.ballet.,” which hails from executive producer Sarah Jessica Parker (“Sex and the City”).
The network has also given second seasons to “Hardwired 2.0,” which features digital influencer Justin Ezarik (also known as “iJustine”) exploring hot tech trends, and “The Future Starts Here,” which looks at what it means to be human in an increasingly-connected world.
In their first seasons, the four renewed shows combined to amass more than 75 million views, AOL said.
“city.ballet.” features Sarah Jessica Parker delving into the intimate and exciting world of the New York City Ballet, looking at the lives of company members, along with their hopes, dreams, passion and hardships.
“#CandidlyNicole,” meanwhile, gives the spotlight to Richie as she dispenses her uncensored perspective on style, parenting, relationships and her journey through life.
“We’re thrilled to continue our relationships with each of these series for a second season,” Gabriel Lewis, head of AOL Studios and AOL Originals, said of the renewals. “Each of these series exceeded our expectations and resonated strongly with our audience. We’re proud to partner with such a talented and diverse group of creators for a second season.”
