Hearst Corporation and AwesomenessTV today announced a joint venture to create a new stand-alone Seventeen-branded YouTube channel featuring original content as well as a multichannel network (MCN), bringing together the leading print/online teen brand with the largest teen brand in digital video. The announcement was made by Brian Robbins, founder and CEO of AwesomenessTV, and David Carey, president of Hearst Magazines. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

AwesomenessTV will program the new Seventeen YouTube channel as well as manage the Seventeen MCN, leveraging its experience in engaging the audience in participation and consumption. The Seventeen YouTube channel will feature original shows, videos and tutorials covering a wide range of topics of interest to teenagers, including fashion, beauty, entertainment, relationships and more. The Seventeen MCN will provide a platform for teen girls to produce and share their own channels similar to the model formulated for the AwesomenessTV MCN.

“Multiple generations of teen girls have turned to Seventeen for the latest in fashion, beauty, lifestyle advice and more, which is why we are excited about working with Hearst to engage with today’s connected teens through the platforms they care about most,” Robbins said. “This is a generation that not only consumes an amazing amount of content, but produces it as well, which is what we are tapping into for Seventeen.”

“Our partnership with AwesomenessTV speaks to the growing importance of digital video content and Hearst’s commitment to being a key player in the creation and distribution of entertaining programming, wherever, whenever and however people want it,” Carey said. “AwesomenessTV is a leader in this area and we are very excited to join with them to expand Seventeen across the fastest growing platform to build its ever-expanding fan base.”

“We are at an unprecedented moment in history where teen girls are defining their own media and the new Seventeen channel allows them to connect with our brand on a whole new level,” said Ann Shoket, editor in chief of Seventeen. “AwesomenessTV really speaks to our audience: we’re identifying the online stars who resonate with our readers, and creating a platform for the millions of young women who are creating their own content to share with other girls around the world.”

“Our strategy has always been to talk to girls on every platform: print, mobile, web and social,” said Jayne Jamison, vice president, publisher of Seventeen. “This is an opportunity for Seventeen and our marketing partners to amplify our ongoing conversation through an engaging, integrated video experience designed for a highly targeted audience in an environment they already know and love.”

AwesomenessTV, one of the fastest growing video destinations for teens on YouTube, includes 81,000 teen and tween-oriented YouTube channels that reach 26 million subscribers and garner more than 1.93 billion views. It was acquired by DreamWorks Animation in May 2013.

The AwesomenessTV brand has recently extended beyond the mobile platform into television and film, signaling continued cross-platform expansion plans. On July 1, AwesomenessTV, a half-hour rapid-fire sketch comedy show, debuted on Nickelodeon to 1.6 million viewers.
