Humans of New York to be Made into a Facebook TV Show

The massively popular photo blog Humans of New York is getting a 30-minute episodic TV series on Facebook’s recently launched “Facebook Watch” platform.

Brandon Stanton, the creator of HoNY, announced the deal on Facebook, saying that he has been filming content for the past 4 years with the help of cinematographer Michael Crommett. Over that time, they have amassed a collection of over 1200 interviews, which they will be turning in to a television show.

“Early on I realized that video would add a deeper layer to Humans of New York,” Stanton writes. “At the heart of all these posts are the conversations themselves. I’m often deeply moved by the people I meet. Or they make me laugh. Or they make me think. And I always do my best to recreate the experience through photos and words. But I always knew that video would provide the closest thing to ‘actually being there.’”

The show is set to take the Humans of New York concept, which Stanton began on his own blog back in 2010, to a more global audience. It will launch next week on Facebook Watch, but for now you can watch the trailer above, or find more info at the HoNY Facebook page.
