Splash News is celebrating its tenth visit to the TV market MIPTV in Cannes by announcing it’s web video show now boasts more than one billion streams a year.
Each day the celebrity news agency pumps out 20 x 1 minute web shows watched in over 60 countries, and a 22 minute TV show beamed across Asia and Africa.
“We are destabilising Iran with Kim Kardashian’s pregnant curves as we speak,” said Gary Morgan, Splash CEO at their booth at number 22:10. “She’s the best nuclear deterrent we have and should divert their attention.” Splash has already closed two new deals on the first day of the market with the Middle East and India. “We are regulars now at MIP and rubbing shoulders with the big TV producers. It’s really satisfying to know a photo agency can produce a TV show from scratch with a low budget but with fantastic daily content of everything Hollywood.” Corbis bought Splash 18 months ago and put its huge resource behind the news agency started by Kevin Smith and Gary Morgan “Corbis’ marketing muscle and belief in breaking news has really helped us move the needle,” added Gary.
