Social networking website MySpace has signed up the producer and director team behind Bebo's hit online drama KateModern to create a series of its own.
MySpace also announced today at the Mip TV programme market in Cannes that it had signed an agreement with Elisabeth Murdoch's ShineReveille International to develop new TV projects from the original content created for its website.
Big Balls Films and Pete Gibbons will make a pilot of the UK-set I Love Chieftown drama this month, with a full 60-"webisode" series launching in mid-September.
