Los Angeles, CA, November 02, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Hollywood production company Deviate Pictures today announced the launch of their newest web series, "Neighborhood Watch," which stars sitcom legend Dennis Haskins. Haskins, most famous for his eleven-year tenure as Bayside's Principal Belding on "Saved by the Bell," makes his first ever return to on-screen principal-ing since the popular show. Haskins' last web series, Acting School Academy, received over one-million views online.
"Neighborhood Watch," which debuted today, is about three fool-hardy men living in Sunnyvale – the safest town in America – who start a Neighborhood Watch as an excuse to avoid their wives. But when actual crimes begin to pop up, the men attempt to solve the mystery... very poorly.
The series, which stars many familiar comedy faces (Ron Babcock, Mike Mitchell, Ron Barba), is distributed by next-generation television network Blip.tv. In addition to featuring the series on their site, Blip.tv will distribute the show to partner sites and platforms including iTunes, Yahoo! and AOL Video, TiVo, Sony Bravia, Boxee, Verizon FiOS and the Roku Digital Video Player. The series will also be hosted on home site www.NeighborhoodWatchSeries.com
The series consists of 5 webisodes, being released every Monday in November. Each 3-4 minute episode features a petty crime that the Watch attempts to solve. As the series progresses, the Watch discover that the crimes make up one twisted plot, with its mastermind revealed in the finale.
Blip.tv’s works with more than 50,000 independently produced Web shows – ranging from sitcoms to dramas to how-to shows and everything in between – and provides them the services of scale they need to be successful and sustainable. Blip.tv hosts and syndicates shows to iTunes, YouTube, Vimeo, AOL Video, Verizon FiOS, TiVo, Sony Bravia, The Roku Digital Video Player, Facebook and elsewhere.
