Web original series are continuing to grow and will reach 1000, says Paul Kontonis, Chairman of the International Academy of Web Television in this interview with Beet.TV

In a sign of the vitality of the sector, he says that nominations for the Academy’s upcoming awards are up over 70 percent from last year.

We caught up with him on Friday at the Future of Television conference in Manhattan where he was moderating a panel.
