On the same day that Amazon Studios announced a new online television initiative, Tribeca Enterprises (which mounts the Tribeca Film Festival and runs distributor Tribeca Films) and popular online distributor Maker Studios are partnering to create a new YouTube channel, The Picture Show. This home for web series and short films will also seek to boost emerging talent via collaborative programming from established filmmakers and up-and-comers. 

“The Picture Show is an exciting opportunity to incubate new stories, talent and audiences,” said Jane Rosenthal, CEO and co-founder with Robert De Niro and Craig Hatkoff of Tribeca Enterprises. “Working with Maker, who is one of the pioneers in the confluence of entertainment and technology, we intend to help artists reach a wider audience.”

“This partnership allows us to take the best of traditional film and television along with new age media to create new opportunities on YouTube for content creators,” said Lisa Donovan, co-founder, Maker Studios, which boasts 650 million views online per month with over 400 channels with 70 million subscribers, and more than 300 original videos produced per month. “The Picture Show will act as an online community where directors, writers and actors from different platforms can creatively collaborate."
