1620 Media will premiere with six new original series: Inside the Extras Studio, The Intersection, The Real Cat Therapist of Beverly Hills, Explained in Children's Drawings, Paw Prints and The Mixology Guys. In addition to housing scripted and unscripted titles, the studio will produce branded entertainment content that will allow advertisers to engage their audiences in new ways. 1620 Media will release seven more original shows throughout October and November, while continuing to develop and introduce new content on an ongoing basis. The company is also in development on other series featuring talent from the worlds of sports, comedy and design.

1620 Media content—which varies in length, from 15 seconds to five minutes—can be viewed on its official website and on YouTube. Each show will have its own YouTube channel as well as a presence on such social-media platforms as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, among others.
