Louis CK ends his web-only video series

Louis CK’s success in promoting on-line-solely video could not final eternally, it appears. The comic has ended his net collection Horace and Pete after one 10-episode season, including the choice to purchase the entire present for $31 if you have not already snapped up every episode. He does not contact on why it is ending so quickly, however it’s likelydue to the staggering value of operating the affair — H&P put him tens of millions of dollars within the gap, and carrying on for an additional season (particularly after dropping the per-episode worth to $three) wasn’t going to assist issues.

It isn’t essentially a catastrophe for Louis, who already stated that he’d doubtless “make [the money] again” by returning to his time-honored stand-up comedy routines. Nevertheless, this exhibits that having massive names and excessive manufacturing values is not sufficient to ensure success for an web video undertaking. In the intervening time, you are still going to wish vast distribution (and plenty of buzz) to have successful in your arms.
