The CW announced today that a new reality series called ONLINE NATION will air from 7:30PM to 8:00PM on Sundays this Fall. Young adults have taken their quest for fame into their own hands as
the amount of user-generated entertainment continues to explode across
the internet. Now The CW is giving them a nationally televised stage
to show off what they’ve got.
ONLINE NATION scours the nearly infinite number of websites, blogs and user-generated materials on the internet to find the best, the hottest, the unique and sometimes, the flat-out bizarre, and presents it on The CW audience’s other favorite screen: the TV screen.
This fun, irreverent weekly series features everything and anything that has captured the attention of the online world, from the most popular sites to the addictive viral videos being shared by millions, to insights from the digital tastemakers. Born of the internet and tailored specifically for this generation, this series also features an innovative interactive element as viewers will be able to see what others are saying and communicate with them live on the air.
The CW is turning mouse potatoes into couch potatoes by putting all the greatest internet clips in one ready-to-use package. ONLINE NATION is from Room 403 Productions with executive producers David Hurwitz (“Fear Factor”) and Paul Cockerill (“Trigger Happy TV,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live”).
