FilmOn.TV Networks and Dame Dash Studios have launched Dame Dash TV on the streaming television provider filmon.com. FilmOn.TV Networks is part of FOTV Media Networks Inc., the interrelated group of digital media companies which produces and distributes hologram, virtual reality, 360 and premium Hollywood content globally with an audience of more than 75 million monthly unique users.

Dame Dash TV will reach FilmOn.com’s 75 million monthly users around the world with content spanning a wide range of interests: business, travel, music (both hip hop and rock and roll), comedy, fashion and more.
“Damon Dash has succeeded in the ways that matter to me most,” said Alki David, CEO of FOTV Media Networks. “Always on his own terms, always the boss. We’re very pleased to be able to spread his wisdom, his musical acumen and inside access to top artists to FilmOn.com’s audiences across the globe.”

More recently announced are plans for a “brutally honest” television series that will tell the story of Roc-A-Fella Records, the label that Dash co-founded with Kareem Burke and Jay Z in 1996. Dash is partnering with producer Lemmuel Plummer on the series, which Dash and Plummer compare to “The People vs OJ Simpson,” and will chart the rapid rise of Roc-A-Fella after the release of Jay Z’s “Reasonable Doubt,” as well as Dash’s relationship with Aaliyah, and the events that led up to Dash’s departure from the label.
“What you’re watching now is the DNA of the millennial generation from my point of you,” said Damon Dash. “This synergy with FilmOn’s global platform is going to get our content out to an even broader audience. We’re getting bigger. And stay tuned for scripted content soon.”
Dame Dash TV will also incorporate Dash’s successful clothing line Poppington.
“Poppington showcases my lifestyle, my sensibility,” says Dash. “We’re building an app that will let you buy the clothes you see on Dame Dash TV on FilmOn.com.”
Dame Dash TV joins hundreds of channels on FilmOn.com with business and lifestyle content, including dozens devoted to Hip Hop and urban culture.
Damon Dash, co-founder of Roc-a-Fella Records with Jay-Z in the 1990’s, also produced Lee Daniels’s first two films, “The Woodsman” and “Shadow Boxer.” He is currently a star of the BET show “Music Moguls.”
