Bebo have launched an interactive comedy show – Chelsey: OMG!, after the success of their drama series Kate Modern, which received 57m views over its run.

Two episodes of the show will be screened each week, deeper content including the characters online to explore, and then interaction with the show via users responding to the action via the social network.

Why blog this? Capitalising on the following of Kate Modern, and shows such as The Gap Year, bebo has a captive audience for snack sized content such as this. Comedy has already been proven as a successful genre for online with much of youtube’s content and sites such as comedy platform ‘Funny or Die’. It will be interesting to see how interaction influences the comedy’s development. Also, Bebo said it is “developing a commissioning and scheduling policy that will see it offer a wider range of online programming next year.”
