In the below video Connected executive producer Morgan Spurlock and AOL president of video Dermot McCormack talk to Techcrunch about their new web series, which is AOL’s first foray into long-form programming.
Says Spurlock that he thought the premise of the show was “what the promise of reality television was. A show that actually deals with reality…The filter was pulled away. They can say whatever they want. The goal for us was to create a show from a non-fiction standpoint that would rival something that you would see on subscription or late-night basic cable. I think that purity, that honesty is what makes the show very different.”
