Maker Studios is launching a YouTube channel dedicated to Los Angeles and West Coast arts and culture with famed Mexican American photographer Estevan Oriol.
TheWrap.com reported that SanctionedTV will debut with three new web series — the documentary series “Tattoo Stories,” the Estevan Oriol-headed photography series “LA Woman” and web series “Skidrow Studios.” Maker partner and rapper Snoop Dogg will be featured on SanctionedTV shows as well as fellow musicians Eminem and Travis Barker.
Oriol explained SanctionedTV in a statement: “SanctionedTV is a front-row view of our world, something most people have never seen before. We’ve been waiting for our chance to spring this content on the world, and the partnership with Maker gave us the ability to do that. All of the series feature original content shot, produced and directed completely in our style and our control.”
SanctionedTV will get promotional help from SA Studios, which has also fronted campaigns for films like “Inglorious Basterds” and “Sinister.”
Maker Studios COO Courtney Holt talked about the launch of SanctionedTV to TheWrap.com: “Our partnership with SA Studios will provide a new, gritty style of content to the Maker audience through SanctionedTV. Each of the three shows will introduce viewers to an interesting aspect of West Coast culture and – we hope – will expand their worldview in unexpected ways.”
