Comedy site Humorous or Die has offered a minority stake to AMC Networks.
The offer is supposed to reinforce the ties among Humorous or Die and AMC’s IFC channel, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with IFC President Jennifer Caserta becoming a member of the site’s board of administrators. (Humorous or Die by now created the IFC collection The Spoils of Babylon and the upcoming collection Brockmire.)
Humorous or Die was started by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy in 2007 and introduced preferred collection which includes Among Two Ferns, Billy on the Avenue and Drunk Heritage. Earlier this yr, President of Manufacturing Mike Farah was promoted to CEO. A couple months later on, Farah laid off 37 staffers and closed the company’s Silicon Valley office, declaring the business desired to emphasis on manufacturing comedy articles.
This in fact isn’t the initially time Humorous or Die has taken income from a more substantial media business — Turner produced a strategic investment in 2002.
