Live-streaming entertainment service Philo has announced its first original series deal.
The deal, with digital media company Kin, calls for production of “Boss Moves,” a series starring Rasheeda Frost, the star of “Love and Hip-Hop.”
Starting in April, Philo will release new episodes each week. The series follows Frost’s home and business life.
Kin’s Facebook, YouTube and Instagram accounts will also carry the series.
In addition, Philo will add more than 65 hours of Kin’s women’s lifestyle content serving diverse audiences, which includes programming featuring Tia Mowry, Adrienne Bailon Houghton, Jeannie Mai Jenkins, Malika and Khadijah Haqq, and Angela Simmons, among others.
The Kin archives will be available as part of Philo’s base package, which costs $25 a month.
“We’re thrilled to bring Kin’s entertaining and diverse content to our platform for our subscribers,” Philo COO Mike Keyserling said. “Kin’s programming, which specifically focuses on entrepreneurship and female empowerment, is a great fit for Philo’s community.”
Philo was launched a decade ago, originally as an affordable alternative to cable targeted to college students, and has continued to keep its cost low by eschewing live sports.
The streaming platform reported 800,000 subscribers at the end of 2021.
