The N will unveil its first original online series created exclusively for broadband.
Degrassi Minis will launch on the network’s Web site (www.the-n.com) Friday, Feb. 3, with new installments debuting online each week through March 17.
“While some of the two- to three-minute shorts take place in between existing episodes of the television show, giving fans an extra taste of their favorite moments, others are completely fantastical takes on the Degrassi universe,” The N said in a release.
“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," The N executive vice president and general manager Tom Ascheim said in a prepared statement. "Die-hard Degrassi fans can now get more of what they crave wherever and whenever they want it.”
