AOL is ready to launch its first long-form original series, “Connected,” which will debut on March 31. Here’s the first trailer for the docu-series, which will document the lives of six New Yorkers and their significant others, as recorded by the subjects themselves:
As you can tell, there will be a few recognizable faces in the show, led by actress Susan Sarandon, who (at least at the time, if gossip rags are accurate) was dating one of the show’s subjects: owner of Spin Jonathan Bricklin. Other notable cast members include Derek Gaines, host of MTV’s “Broke A$$ Game Show,” and radio/TV host Rosie Noesi.
Debuting on March 31 with its first four episodes, the rest of the series will be released in four-episode batches every two weeks until May 20 (20 episodes in total).
“Connected” is based on a popular Israeli docu-reality series from Koda Communications, and is produced for AOL by Morgan Spurlock’s shingle Warrior Poets. Executive producers include AOL head of video Dermot McCormack, Koda’s Ram Landes, and Spurlock.
