Felicia Day's Geek & Sundry Grows to Add Vlogger Network (Exclusive)
After a year of growth, Felicia Day's Geek & Sundry is expanding.
Day's YouTube channel is launching its own talent incubator with the Multi-Channel Network, which launches Monday, May 20, with eight personalities. The Geek & Sundry Vlogs Channel will focus on supporting 20 vloggers with Day and producer Jenni Powell serving as mentors. Each vlogger will receive support from Geek & Sundry and a per-video stipend.
“It’s incredibly exciting to expand Geek & Sundry as a network with our new vlogs channel that looks to present new geek voices to a wider audience,” Day said. “My hope is to create a platform and home for up-and-coming vloggers who have a chance to participate, learn and develop with us, while continuing to grow Geek & Sundry by authentically connecting with and serving our community.”
Submissions for the vlogging slots are now open on Geek & Sundry's Vlog.
The news comes two months after Geek & Sundry announced three new series and renewed another pair for its second year online.
