DIGA Studios was founded by former MTV President, Tony DiSanto, DIGA’s brand is built on creative diversity, genre-busting, talent development and a rebellious – sometimes subversive – pop-sensibility.
DIGA’s goal is to bring ideas to life by any means necessary, from the traditional scripted and reality development process, to digital incubation of concepts, to acquisitions of IP/titles or the creation of original IPs through its book division for later adaptation to other media, to a variety of creative and business partnerships with talent, studios, media companies and even other production companies. There are no “rules.” The path taken is that which best serves the needs of a particular project.
Since its launch in January 2011, DIGA has developed and produced content for A&E, CW, History, Lifetme, CMT, MTV, NBCU Studios, VH1, Bravo, MTV2, LOGO, Disney Channel, MTV International, Oxygen, YouTube, Nickelodeon, and many others.
DIGA’s current series include Scream and Teen Wolf (MTV), Say it in Song (MTV International), The Ed Bassmaster Show (CMT), Mac Lethal’s Binge Thinking (MTV), MTV’s Bugging Out (MTV International), Joel’s Got Seoul (Viceland), and Sorry Not Sorry (Seriously.TV). DIGA is currently in pre-production on its first feature film, Eat Brains Love, with Van Toffler’s Gunpowder&Sky and Full Fathom Five.
DIGA’s book division – which will generate an original IP for later scripted adaptations – has secured a three-book deal with Macmillan Publishing under the umbrella title of High School Horror. The first book, Teen Frankenstein by author Chandler Baker, launched in January 2016 to strong reviews and sales, and the second installment, Teen Hyde, hit stores in January 2017 to critical praise. DIGA is currently shopping the adaptation for television while Chandler is working on book three.
