Eight episodes of “Wolfpack of Reseda” sponsored by Kia will unfold beginning Thursday.
In a first of sorts for MySpace and Fox Digital Entertainment, the pair are debuting the first of an eight-episode scripted series on Thursday called Wolfpack of Reseda, described as “darkly hilarious.”
The show, consisting of eight-minute episodes, is produced in conjunction with Kia Motors America, which will be the one and only sponsor with its Soul urban passenger vehicle featured prominently in the show.
