Adam Corolla and Pluto TV Gear Up to Launch Chassy

Exclusively on Pluto TV - Chassy Media Debuts a Channel for Car Connoisseurs and Racing Enthusiasts on August 21st

Los Angeles, CA(15 Aug 2018)

Pluto TV and Chassy Media today announced the launch of Chassy, a new and exclusive channel dedicated to delivering premium entertainment tapping into the passion, culture and history of automobiles, motorcycles, racing, vintage cars, and all things motor machinery. The Chassy channel is thoughtfully curated to deliver a robust lineup of historical documentaries, fast-paced feature films and television shows that explore this thrilling world through an artistic lens.

Chassy Media was founded by Adam Carolla and Nathan Adams in 2016 as a dedicated digital destination to distribute the films they were producing based on their love of automobiles, motorcycles, racing and vintage cars. Launching Chassy on Pluto TV marks the next chapter in Carolla’s successful media empire where he has earned coveted success as a comedian on radio and TV, podcast host, New York Times best-selling author, movie director, producer and now an operator of his own streaming television channel.

“Chassy Media began as a digital, grassroots hub for the automotive documentaries that we were developing and producing,” states Adam Carolla. “Being a vintage racer and lifelong car guy, I wanted to really make sure we were getting great content out to as many gear heads and enthusiasts as possible." Launching an entire channel on a free streaming service like Pluto TV, to a built-in audience, is a win on every level.”

“Chassy’s projects are about blending high level filmmaking with the history, passion and beauty of anything with an engine,” said Nathan Adams, president of production & acquisitions of Chassy Media. "There is an endless supply of amazing, compelling stories in motor sports, and we plan to deliver as many as possible though Chassy and Pluto TV. We’re delighted to partner with a leading free streaming television service like Pluto TV to distribute these projects in a unique way.” 

The Chassy channel is the newest addition to Pluto TV, the leading streaming television service, with a lineup that includes 100+ live, linear, curated channels and thousands of movies on demand from major studios, networks, publishers and digital media companies. Chassy will launch exclusively on Pluto TV on August 21st, 2018.

“Chassy is the perfect addition to the Pluto TV family of channels,” says Amy Kuessner, SVP of Content Partnerships, Pluto TV. “With a robust offering of theme-based channels, Chassy taps into a world of automobiles in a way that showcases the beauty, artistry and history in a way that no other has been able to do. With a library of content that speaks to all audiences, enthusiasts and more, we are eager to be able to work with such an established force in media to deliver their passion and artistry through yet another medium.”
