Verizon Wireless And Michael Eisner’s Vuguru Introduce “The All-For-Nots” Series On V CAST Video
BASKING RIDGE, NJ, and BEVERLY HILLS, CA — Verizon Wireless, the builder and owner of the nation’s most reliable wireless voice and data network, and Michael Eisner’s independent new media studio, Vuguru, today announced “The All-For-Nots” will air on Verizon Wireless’ V CAST Video service. “The All-For-Nots,” Vuguru’s second original series, will debut tomorrow on V CAST in the Music and Showcase categories on V CAST Video-enabled phones. Verizon Wireless is the exclusive wireless provider of “The All-For-Nots” video.
“The All-For-Nots” program, created by Thom Woodley and Kathleen Grace of Dinosaur Diorama, is an original Internet comedy series that follows a documentary crew filming a fictional indie rock band called “The All-For-Nots” as they travel the U.S. on an under-funded and poorly planned tour. “The All-For-Nots” will visit 24 cities on the band’s U.S. tour during each of the seven- to 10-minute episodes in the series.
“Verizon Wireless’ V CAST service is a clear leader in the mobile video space and partnering with them for the second time on an original Web series was an objective from the very start of this production,” said Michael Eisner. “Short-form video is a popular source of entertainment for young, early adopters of new media, and that feature of ‘The All-For-Nots’ makes it perfect for viewing on a mobile platform.”
Weekly episodes of “The All-For-Nots” series will be available on V CAST Video through August 2008, and will include documentary-style narratives, concert footage from the band, and interviews with fans and special guests.
Customers with select V CAST-enabled phones can check out V CAST whenever they want for just $3.00 for 24-hour use or by signing up for the $15.00 V CAST VPak monthly subscription, which also includes access to Verizon Wireless’ ESPN MVP, Get It Now® and Mobile Web 2.0SM services. Customers get unlimited basic video – including “The All-For-Nots” – but application download fees apply for 3D games and premium video. There are no airtime or megabyte charges to download, stream or watch V CAST content with any V CAST subscription.
