Web Series

In recent years with the ever growing popularity of streaming services and websites such as Netflix and Amazon Prime, it has seen that television viewings from younger audiences has declined from previous years. This  means that there is a growing market for web based series as they are growing as a new platform, with easier access than scheduled television. This is due to the massive influence of the internet, and how it is becoming more and more popular with more options available more so than ever.

The break through of web series wasn’t originally as successful, but over recent years it has grown. So much so, that many web series are now being scouted out and being produced on television giving those who create and star in the shows many more opportunities in this industry.
