TVGN is rebranding as POP, with fan-fueled programming aimed at “someone who wants to stay connected to that emotion of youth,” Brad Schwartz, the net’s president, entertainment and media. “We noticed in the culture that fandom is blowing up. Scandal fans are ‘gladiators’; Lady Gaga fans are ‘little monsters.’ The opportunity to see the world through a fan’s eyes is a unique lane.” Target audience? “We think of them as a ‘modern grown up,’” says Schwartz. “Someone who has kids later in life, likes to work out, has a lot of disposable income.” TVGN, owned by CBS Corp. and Lionsgate, launches as POP in 1Q15 with 400 hours of original programming that expands on previously announced series including Rock This Boat: New Kids on the Block.
