Last year saw the debut of 12 new AOL On original series -- attracting more than 140 million views to date. As we kick-off 2014, we're thrilled to announce another AOL Original: "Fatherhood."
This documentary series with actor-director-comedian Hank Azaria explores his touching, humorous and enlightening journey: from a man who isn't sure he wants to have kids, to expectant father, to father of a premature boy struggling for his life, and finally to a regular dad facing the normal joys, trials and tribulations of being a father. Coinciding with today's premier, Azaria was featured on NBC's Today Show this morning to discuss the series and the lessons he learned along the way:
Be sure to catch the first two 'Fatherhood' episodes today with Azaria quizzing friends Bryan Cranston, Kevin Bacon and others about how to be a good dad. New episodes will launch every Wednesday through March.

Having proven success in the US and Canada (with more than 300% growth this past year!), and with new markets waiting and ready for a premium video experience, I am very pleased that Tal Simantov will be leading our international efforts to take the AOL On brand global as VP, Global Video Strategy. Tal is working closely with Graham Moysey, Head of International, and will unveil our first international launch for 2014 in Q1.
As many of you know, Tal was a co-founder of 5min along with me and Hanan Laschover and led the post-acquisition rebranding of our platform to AOL On. There is no one that knows and understands the DNA of our brand better than Tal, who has served as the AOL On CMO for the past three years; and I know there is no one better to take our brand global. Tal will continue to lead all video marketing while taking on this expanded role. If you are lucky enough to see him during his upcoming international travel, please feel free to congratulate him in person on his new role!
