Following in Will Ferrell's footsteps

Another video content site has sprouted from the desires of Hollywood professionals, tired of the creative restrictions placed upon them by the old media companies. The brainchild of former MTV and CBS Radio executive Rob Barnett, "My Damn Channel" will feature the works of Comedian Harry Shearer, filmmaker David Wain and music producer Don Was, to name a few. Barnett points to the hugely viral "The Landlord" video produced by Will Ferrell for his web venture as an example of the opportunities that exist in the web space. The site which launched yesterday has a distribution deal in place with YouTube. Wired News story.
