Taryn Southern

The creator and star of "Taryn TV" (over 400,000 subscribers), Taryn is one of the early pioneers of digital media, having been the first person to sell and produce a TV series based on an online video ("Project MyWorld" to DirecTV in 2006) and subsequently, a scripted pilot based on a web series ("Private High Musical" to MTV in 2009.) Taryn has sold two television shows based on web concepts. In 2006, she executive produced and starred in "Project MyWorld," a travel series on DirecTV, and in 2009, she sold her web series "Private High Musical," to MTV and developed the project as a half-hour musical comedy pilot with veteran "Family Guy"/"American Dad" writer/producer, David Zuckerman.
