BBC launches BBC Taster

BBC launch project asking online audiences to pick next generation of stars 

The BBC is asking online audiences to help discover the next generation of stars after launching a new interactive platform in which users shape the content and rate what they see.

BBC Taster, created by the team behind the iPlayer, will open up the usually secretive development process through which new talent is traditionally uncovered and awarded commissions.

BBC Taster will also allow users to play “mash-ups” of material sitting in the BBC archive. The launch content includes 40 minutes of unseen material from a Jennifer Saunders Newsnight interview with Lena Dunham, the Girls creator. Re-versioned with animated elements, users can navigate directly to Dunham talking about topics such as “Don’t pap me.”
