James Patterson's wildly popular
Maximum Ride books to be a YouTube series?
According to the New York Times, THIS WILL happen!
Mr. Patterson has struck a deal with the media company Collective Digital Studio to turn his best-selling young adult fantasy series "Maximum Ride" into an online series for YouTube. The plan is an initial batch of 6-10 episodes that will run 10-15 minutes each. Patterson says the Web series appealed because his young fans were already posting thousands of amateur videos enacting scenes from the books on YouTube.
