Content studio Portal A announced that it has greenlit two pilots as part of a brand-new program called ‘Moonshots,’ which will focus on funding and producing innovate projects anchored by digital-native talent.

“Some of the most groundbreaking series in recent memory — from Insecure to Broad City — have come as a result of creative talent bypassing the traditional gatekeepers and taking the idea directly to the audience,” says Nate Houghteling, an executive producer at the company. “We pride ourselves on our ability to experiment with new formats and platforms, and we see a huge opportunity to use YouTube and social media as a proving ground.”
