MUMBAI: Ben Silverman's multimedia entertainment studio Electus,
an operating business of IAC, has announced a show 'K-Town'
-- the first show from its new pop-culture channel, Loud,
slated to launch on YouTube on 2 July .
and executive produced by Tyrese Gibson's HQ Productions,
'K-Town' is a reality show that explores Asian Americans who
reside in the heart of Koreatown, Los Angeles - the Korean
culture center that is sandwiched between downtown Los Angeles
and the business district of the Miracle Mile. From karaoke
bars to night clubs, the series follows the cast as they discover
themselves and what it means to be Asian American growing
up in the 21st century.
Productions founder Tyrese Gibson said, "We are excited
to partner with such visionaries as Ben Silverman, Tony DiSanto
and Liz Gateley to launch K-Town into the pop-culture stratosphere.
Loud is the perfect platform for chronicling the social rituals
of this unique Asian American subculture. While nothing about
this series is commonplace, the show is highly-relatable as
the cast's personal stories, struggles and triumphs are universal."
