CALL FOR ENTRIES: 41st Telly Awards
The world’s largest honor for video and television content across all screens opened its annual call for entries, offering several exciting new categories that signal the continued growth in creative approaches to the rising digital video production, storytelling and distribution landscape: new Immersive & Mixed Reality categories (which embrace media from VR, 360 video and AR), new Social Impact categories, and an expansion of its Diversity & Inclusion categories. The Awards are also rolling out a new campaign this year, dubbed “Telly Award Winners Tell Great Stories”, which celebrates their origins in local and regional commercials, as well as their inclusive, platform-agnostic theme and message. Early entry deadline is December 6, 2019. Winners will be announced May 20.

WATCH: ‘Hazbin Hotel’ Pilot [Mature Audiences]

Created by SVA grad Vivenne Medrano (Vivziepop), the just-debuted adult toon set in ultraviolent, hypersexed and cartoonishly ghoulish underworld has already surpassed 2 million views in just two days. Click through to watch the whole half-hour pilot, or watch the trailer below for a taste of what’s in store.

Follow Charlie, the princess of Hell, as she pursues her seemingly impossible goal of rehabilitating demons to peacefully reduce overpopulation in her kingdom. After a yearly extermination imposed by angels, She opens a hotel in hopes that patients will be “checking out” into Heaven. While most of Hell mocks her goal, her devoted partner Vaggie, and their first test subject, adult film-star Angel Dust, stick by her side. When a powerful entity known as the “Radio Demon” reaches out to Charlie to assist in her endeavors, her crazy dream is given a chance to become a reality.
