Seth Laderman Made Exec VP For SDCC's Streaming Video

Seth LadermanSeth Laderman, previous head of production for Legendary Digital and Nerdist Industries, has been made Executive Vice President and General Manager of San Diego Comic-Con's International subscription video-on-demand service, planned to launch in early 2016.

Mr. Laderman, in association with Comic-Con International, will be responsible for programming the service's broad portfolio of content, including original short-form content created exclusively for the channel's subscribers, films and television series from Lionsgate and other studios designed to appeal to the diverse interests of Comic-Con's fans as well as exclusive archived footage from Comic-Con's 45-year history.  The Comic-Con International SVOD service is designed to expand the comics and pop culture event of the year into a year-round online experience for longtime fans and new audiences.


Seth was the man who helped take Chris Hardwick's start-up podcast and website and turn it into a worldwide brand as Nerdist Industries and was behind many of those spinoff TV shows, before developing  Amy Poehler's Smart Girls at the Party and Felicia Day's Geek & Sundry.

He has yet to try and turn Bleeding Cool into an international boutique of snark, gossip and rumour but you know it's only a matter of time.
