'DC All Access' Adds Two New Correspondents, Announces 'DC Kids' Spinoff
Things are changing for DC All Access, DC Entertainment's online brand of original programming dedicated to comics, movies, TV shows and video games based on its characters and properties, with new correspondents joining the team — including one face familiar to CW watchers.
iZombie star Rahul Kohli and SourceFed NERD host Whitney Moore are both joining DC All Access, with Moore debuting with Tuesday's episode, which features Kohli as a guest. Ahead of the upcoming release of anticipated video game sequel Injustice 2, longtime gamer Kohli will cover the gaming front, sitting down for interviews and debuting exclusive previews of upcoming DC games, while Moore will take over from Tiffany Smith to co-host DC All Access alongside Jason Inman.
Smith isn't leaving the team, however; she's simply shifting focus, and will be taking on new assignments as the new film and television correspondent, offering news, interviews and sneak peaks of upcoming programs and movies based on DC properties. Additionally, Hector Navarro will continue in his weekly role covering DC's upcoming TV shows each Monday.
In a statement accompanying the news, DC Entertainment Director of Digital Marketing Paul Malmont said that DC All Access — which launched in 2013 as a weekly web series, before launching a regularly updated stand-alone app last year — has "solidified its position as the one-stop source for the latest news hitting the DC Universe. By adding Kohli and Moore to the series and expanding Smith’s role in covering TV and film, the show is becoming bigger and better than ever before.”
DC's online offerings will expand further with DC Kids, a new series from All Access producers Telepictures Productions Inc. Aimed at an all-age audiences, the new series will be hosted by "two kid super-fans," Jett and Analei, and will focus on "unboxings and demos of the latest, must-have action figures and toys, do-it-yourself crafts, recipes and activities, game-style show competitions and so much more," according to DC. The new strand of programming launches March 3.
"“From DC Super Hero Girls to Teen Titans Go!, there is a massive fan base of young viewers looking for the latest news, products and content about these iconic characters," says Scott Gordon, director of digital marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. "We’re excited to partner with DC to launch DC Kids as a new way to directly reach these passionate fans, and create a space that is specifically geared to a young audience."
