BTW, I checked with IAWTV, super responsive, on rjlackie’s suggestion.
The answer from Tina at IAWTV, cautioning me to take it with a lot of caution, and with her permission …
“Well, that number is not easy to measure as there is not one sure fire way to measure it. Between brands, studios, international and independents I would venture to guess that it’s in the thousands. There are so many platforms for web series (besides YouTube) so my guess would be that.”
Thank you rjlackie and Tina at IAWTV,a nd the Stareable community; fully appreciated insights.
