Hayden Black Finds Online Success with “Goodnight Burbank” and “Abigail’s X-Rated Teen Diary”

Hayden Black is one of a growing group of director/writers/producers in Hollywood who are finding success in original, serialized programming for the Web. I caught up with Hayden earlier this month.

He talks about “Goodnight Burbank” and his latest hit, “Abigail’s X-Rated Teen Diary.” Abigail the 13 year-old female who suffers from a genetic disease which makes her look like a beadred, middle aged man — who is played by Hayden. It is a big concept, but it works. Oh, and it’s not X-Rated at all, that’s just a provocative title.

Hayden told Beet.TV that Abigail is getting some 2 million streams a months. That’s impressive. He explains that he is making money by product placements and mentions.
