Marriott International’s lifestyle brand, Moxy Hotels, is collaborating with the company’s Content Studio to produce “Do Not Disturb,” a new YouTube web series hosted by Taryn Southern, the comedian and creator of Taryn TV.
Set to launch in September, the series will be filmed July 28-31 at YouTube Space LA in conjunction with VidCon.
Set up as a slumber party, “Do Not Disturb” takes place in a mock-up of a Moxy guestroom, where Southern will interview and gossip with celebrities about their careers, travel habits and quirky experiences on the road.
“Do Not Disturb” episodes will air on MoxyHotels.com and Moxy’s YouTube channel beginning in September, and the series will introduce Moxy Hotels in the U.S. market. Ten Moxy Hotel projects are slated to open in 2016 in locations including New Orleans (French Quarter and Warehouse District), San Francisco, New York City (Chelsea, Midtown and Lower Manhattan), Chicago, Seattle, San Diego and Washington, D.C.
“This partnership allows our studio to create innovative content that will entertain and amuse a new generation of consumers, and speaks to the playful nature of the Moxy Hotels brand,” said David Beebe, vice president, creative and content marketing, at Marriott International. “Furthermore, this series is another example of how our portfolio of brands is partnering directly with the YouTube creator community to establish long-term relationships with a focus on enabling creators to do what they do best — tell original stories, engage audiences and ultimately create entertaining content where the brand plays a character in the story.”
