Online TV Platform Philo to Bow First Original Program

Philo Feb. 23 announced it has inked a deal with entertainment company Kin to stream the upcoming “Boss Moves,” with hip-hop star Rasheeda Frost. It’s the online TV service’s first foray into original programming.
 
The series, which will premiere in April, will begin shooting later this month and will include 12 30-minute episodes.
 
The series will also be available across YouTube, Facebook and Instagram. In addition, Philo will stream more than 65 hours of Kin’s women’s lifestyle content, including “Hello Hunnay” with Jeannie Mai Jenkins, “Really, Truly, Maybe” with Christina Milian, and “Heart of the Batter” with Jordin Sparks. Kin’s programs will be available as part of Philo’s base package for all subscribers.
 
 
“Kin’s programming, which specifically focuses on entrepreneurship and female empowerment, is a great fit for Philo’s community,” Mike Keyserling, COO of Philo, said in a statement. “We are certain that Philo subscribers will enjoy the extensive catalog of Kin shows, as well as Boss Moves, our upcoming new original series with Rasheeda.”
 
In the series, Atlanta native Frost will welcome audiences into her homes and businesses and behind the scenes of her many financial decisions, including a branded Frost Bistro & Bar or international real estate ventures.
 
“Kin creates programming that resonates with women of all backgrounds, wherever they are watching,” Tejal Ajmera, COO of Kin, said in a statement. “We are excited to debut ‘Boss Moves’ with Philo and are confident it will attract audiences looking for strong, talented and diverse talent.”
