Complex Networks was formed from the acquisition of Complex Media Inc. through a joint venture by Verizon and Hearst in 2016.
The new series, which premiered Wednesday, features one artist each week.
The debut episode follows Omar Apollo, a 22-year-old, self-taught musician who went from living in his friend’s basement to playing venues across the country in just a year.
Other music artists featured in the series include Umi, Baby Rose, Jelani, Kenny Mason and Earthgang.
The two media brands partnered to produce mobile-first digital content for Gen Z and millennial audiences using 5G technology.
“In The Know is a mobile-first brand that enlightens and inspires young audiences through short-form storytelling,” stated Joanna Lambert, head of consumer at Verizon Media.
The “In The Know” series is available on InTheKnow.com, Complex.com and and Pigeons & Planes’ YouTube channel.
Verizon Media recently expanded its In The Know network to include 24/7 programming covering a range of topics, from esports and entertainment to news and music.
In The Know’s content lives on social and mobile channels and across Verizon Media’s owned-and-operated brands, including Yahoo and AOL. It has more than 62 million social followers.
Complex Networks’ digital channels also include First We Feast and Sole Collector, among others.
