In addition, ‘COIN’ will also add highly produced comedy shorts featuring celebrities throughout the year.
“RelativityREAL is committed to creating engaging content across multiple platforms and we are excited to partner with YouTube on bringing ‘COIN’ to millions of people across the world. ‘COIN’ will take people behind the scenes of the lives of entrepreneurs in both a funny and informative way,” said Tom Forman, CEO, RelativityREAL

for TLC, Coming Home
for Lifetime and The Great Food Truck Race
for Food Network.
‘COIN’ is launching with the following three shows this week:
With a 20-year-old millionaire CEO and a #1 selling app, Dingle Inc is the hottest start up in Silicon Valley. However, its young and quirky employees are anything but professional, albeit sane. This irreverent original scripted comedy series looks at the world of Dingle through the eyes of the buttoned up head of Human Resources, who's forced to deal with nothing but shenanigans on a daily basis.
$WAG is a fun magazine-style show that profiles how the new generation of young entrepreneurs travel, live, party, work, and play. The show will highlight bespoke denim designers, personal wine concierge services, world-famous cobbler and custom shoe makers to the stars, Oscars gifting suites, members-only exotic car clubs and more.
In this profile show, business leaders of today are interviewed by the business leaders of tomorrow: 8-year-olds. Set in elementary school classrooms across the nation, prominent industry leaders discuss their craft with kids. The impresarios break down what they do and who they are, revealing candid answers meant for the simplest yet endearing audience. Expect earnest, off the cuff, funny answers from our CEOS who are being asked questions that only a child can think of. And who can lie to a first grader? Guests include Adam Rich (co-founder of Thrillist); Claudine Cheever (Chief Strategist of Saatchi & Saatchi); The Harlem Globetrotters; and Robin Dolch (PR, Hundred Stories) among others.
