Strike.TV is up and running. There was even a press breakfast about it held this morning with some of the participants, including CEO Peter Hyoguchi and CCO Ian Deitchman. It was formed in January 2008 during the writers strike as a way for top Hollywood writers, direcors and actors to exercise their independence from Big Media employers and create, control, profesionally produce, and distribute their own made-for-web original series and other programming. So far, its “Most Watched” product is writer Mary Feuer’s (Lonelygirl15, Dante’s Cove), series With The Angels, a fish-out-of-water story of a small town Arkansas girl swimming in the freak-infested waters of Venice in SoCal. And its “Highest Rated” show is Joe & Kate, written and performed by Joe Kelly (How I Met Your Mother) and Kate Purdy (Cold Case) about a couple living somewhere between dating and marriage.
