Rogers to air Vuguru series on mobile, online
Rogers Media will stream season two of The Booth at the End, produced by U.S. indie multi-platform studio Vuguru, exclusively in Canada on mobile and online.
The announcement came at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in L.A. on Tuesday.
Rogers Media will deliver the second season of the digital series online at Citytv.com and Rogers Anyplace TV, and via mobile through the Citytv video app, for five consecutive weeks starting Aug. 6.
The series will also air day and date on Hulu stateside.
The Booth at the End is a five-part, 22-minute series that stars Xander Berkeley (Nikita) who sits in a booth at the end of a diner, receiving seemingly unattainable requests from strangers, which he can grant at a price.
Directed by Adam Arkin, the series also stars Dayton Callie, Abby Miller, Jenni Blong, Noel Fisher and Danny Nucci.
The Booth at the End is written and created by Christopher Kubasik (Internet Adventures), with Jaime Burke (The Pact) exec producing and Vahan Paretchan as associate producer.
The first season of the series will air on FX Canada for five weeks starting Aug. 9.
Vuguru, founded by Tornante, the privately-held investment firm founded by former Walt Disney Company CEO Michael Eisner, produces and distributes content on emerging and new media platforms.
In 2009, Rogers Media acquired a minority stake in Vuguru and the exclusive Canadian distribution rights to future Vuguru product.
