Looking for some alternative entertainment online? Rowdy Orbit may be just for you as it is an online destination for professionally produced, original Web series. The content is targeted towards African American, Latino, Hispanic, and Native American viewing audiences. The site also aims to help support media creators based on their goals and objectives.
Rowdy Orbit was founded by Jonathan Moore after becoming frustrated with the lack of television or Web video programing geared towards minority audiences. It launched in September 2009 and the site is averaging over 90K monthly views already. Currently Rowdy Orbit has 101 individual webshows. Unfortunately, the site does not offer a way to link directly to specific series, episodes or embed the videos. Rowdy Orbit will be on hand showing off some its series to the crowd at TECH cocktail DC 8.
