MySpace announced the debut of a new original series and the siteâ€™s first online game show, â€œBFF.â€ The MySpace original program, which tests how well best friends know each other, is produced by Meryl Poster and David Rubin and sponsored by Ortho Womenâ€™s Health & Urology, Division of Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Each â€œBFFâ€ webisode will feature a pair of best friends who are challenged to answer questions about each other in several rounds. Based on the number of correct answers, prizes will be awarded at the end of each round.
The series, hosted by NBCâ€™s â€œLast Comic Standingâ€ finalist, Amy Schumer, will run through June 30. MySpace users in the U.S. will also have a chance to join in on the fun as contestants by submitting video entries on the â€œBFFâ€ MySpace page. Those selected will be flown to New York City for the taping of their show.
Also available on the â€œBFFâ€ MySpace page is an application allowing the MySpace community to create their own â€œBFFâ€ quizzes. Users will have the ability to customize quizzes by selecting questions from a list of categories. They will be able to send the quiz to friends to see how well their friends really know them.
