AOL announced 15 new shows for AOL On channels at the AOL NewFront 2013. Gabriel Lewis, head of AOL Studios, says they “wanted to focus on short-form, docu-style series that really were focused on a particular perspective or talent or point of view, that when you finished watching it, the world was a more interesting place.

“We tried to create a uniform slate, and I think that came across today.”

At the end of this video interview, Lewis, also a co-creator of HuffPost Live, speaks about the progress of the 8-month-old network. So far, HuffPost Live has seen over 8,000 guests from over 80 countries and has received more than 1 million comments.
