Michael Eisner’s ’Prom Queen’ Series Now Available on V CAST From Verizon Wireless; Coming Soon to Verizon’s FiOS
Michael Eisner’s new media studio, Vuguru (www.vuguru.com), and Verizon announced Tuesday (April 3) that Verizon will carry the studio’s first production, “Prom Queen,” on all Verizon platforms including Wireless, High Speed Internet and FiOS TV. Verizon Wireless’ V CAST is the exclusive wireless platform for “Prom Queen.”
“Prom Queen” is Vuguru’s first original show. It was created specifically for the wireless and broadband platforms. “Prom Queen” is now available on V CAST Video, and the series soon will be delivered to the TV sets of FiOS customers and to Verizon broadband customers.
“Prom Queen” is a scripted, serialized mystery told over 80 episodes - each running 90 seconds long. Set against the final two months of the school year, “Prom Queen” has a blend of love, gossip, and betrayal - all of the twists and turns of high school leading up to the biggest night of any senior’s life: Prom Night.
“Prom Queen’s short-form episodes are designed to be easily viewed on multiple platforms and are aimed at young, early adopters of new media content and technology,” said Michael Eisner. “With the series running on Verizon Wireless’ V CAST Video and Verizon’s FiOS TV and the company’s broadband services, we further empower the audience by providing them the ability to watch ’Prom Queen’ whenever and wherever they want.”
V CAST from Verizon Wireless is the first true wireless broadband consumer multimedia service in the country and runs on Verizon Wireless’ Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) network, available to more than 200 million Americans from coast-to-coast. With V CAST Video, customers can get video content on demand including news, weather and sports updates, clips from popular TV programs, music videos, movie trailers, 3D games and more. Verizon Wireless customers can find the “Prom Queen” series in the Showcase section on V CAST-enabled phones.

Customers get unlimited basic video - including “Prom Queen” - but application download fees apply for 3D games and premium video.
