Bang Zoom! Entertainment, a leading full-service audio post production company and producer of original entertainment content, has announced its plans to continue to develop its popular AnimeTV™ series throughout 2008. The year has kicked off with a never-before-seen episode that began streaming for free beginning January 1 at http://goanimetv.com/.
Episode 11, which was produced in 2007 but not aired, is hosted by popular anime voice actor Johnny Yong Bosch and features a review and commentary on the popular series Eureka 7, which is airing currently on Cartoon Network, as well as a segment on Fatal Fury.
AnimeTV is the first industry-approved program devoted to the anime phenomenon sweeping North America. In addition to airing on its own web site, AnimeTV review segments are also seen on IGN Entertainment’s popular anime.ign web outlet, and 9 episodes were recently broadcast by Comcast Corporation on its Anime Selects ON DEMAND network. The series performed so well that the cable provider is currently discussing the production of a second season. Comcast Corporation is the nation’s largest producer and distributor of non-linear programming designed for Video-On-Demand. AnimeTV is the creation of Bang Zoom! Entertainment President and CEO Eric P. Sherman, an ardent anime fan and the head of one of the leading facilities providing voice talent and audio post production to the anime and video game industry.
‘We are very excited to announce the availability of this all new episode of AnimeTV’, says Sherman. ‘The series continues to draw new viewers with professional production and we look forward to developing new content throughout 2008. Fans can look forward to plenty of surprises and announcements throughout the year. The availability of the program on Comcast’s Anime Selects ON DEMAND marked the first time an independently produced program dedicated to covering the burgeoning anime market was made available in so many major national markets. Fans everywhere can now check out Episode 11 and see what has viewers and the industry so abuzz.’
