I am delighted to welcome one of my favorite movie blogs, ThePlaylist, to the indieWIRE Blog Network, where it will go live Tuesday morning.

The Playlist tracks the (mostly) smart movies that indieWIRE readers want to know about. Every day, the site's team of core contributors (out of twenty or so bloggers around the globe) trawl their sources--and the internet--for news about what's happening in film production. They may start with initial reporting in the trades, but The Playlist doesn't just regurgitate, comment and repeat. They dig, check and ask questions as the story develops and matures. They keep all of us, via posts and tweets, up-to-date.

The Playlist is on it when The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo comes together or Paul Greengrass falls out of the Bourne franchise; they post some twenty news stories a day (their output abates a tad on weekends). Pieces on The Playlist are well-sourced, detailed, and accurate.

First founded as a movie music lovers' newsletter/E-zine by New York-based journalist Rodrigo Perez back in 2000 and revived as a blog in 2006, The Playlist has evolved into a collective, a hive mind, where individual contributors (who come and go) are less crucial than the brand.

The site is run day-to-day by Montreal-based blogger, managing editor Kevin Jagernauth, who makes assignments, files stories, and checks copy, with help from other volunteers in The Playlist network, which runs on shifts around the world, from Australia and Chile to the U.K. and Ireland. "We exist where we want to exist," says Jagernauth. "Our lap tops are our world."

He adds: "Working with indieWIRE will allow us to broadcast our voice on a larger platform, and we couldn't be more pleased to be joining indieWIRE's team of respected writers and bloggers."
