CBS clears way for ‘Smash Cut’

Series set to bow on Sept. 27

CBS Television Distribution has achieved 95% clearance of “Smash Cuts,” a series that will amass viral short videos taken from the Internet, in time for a planned launch the week of Sept. 27.

Designed for weekend viewing in back-to-back half-hour episodes, “Smash” has been sold in every top-30 market to Tribune, CBS and CW station groups, airing primarily on CW affiliates including KTLA Los Angeles and WPIX New York.

In addition to amateur content, “Smash” will showcase new professional short vids as well as past clips from the CBS TV Distribution library. Affiliate stations will also have destinations on their own websites for local viewers to submit their own content for consideration.

David Garfinkle and Jay Renfroe of Renegade 83 (“Blind Date”) are exec producing.
