Bullfrog Spas announces the upcoming debut of The Principal, a Bullfrog Spas branded comedy web series. The first season of The Principal is comprised of 12 episodes, each 3 to 5 minutes in length, which tell the story of High School Principal, Gary Foote. The series is set at the fictional Brookfield High School, home of the Fighting Bullfrogs.
Bullfrog Spas has tapped some of the most influential stars of the top 2 social video networks, YouTube and Vine. The Principal stars are Eric Artell (YouTube), Manon Mathews (Vine), Marcus Johns (Vine), and Lana McKissack (YouTube).
The Principal will air on YouTube and will also be distributed through other online channels, including the Bullfrog Spas website and other 3rd party sites and channels.
Bullfrog International Marketing Director, Dan Sjoblom, commented on the motivation behind the web series: Were seeing an outpouring of branded content from large brands. Smaller brands in traditional industries like ours seem hesitant to invest in this kind of content marketing. More brands continue to opt for the safer route of educating with their content. With The Principal were instead choosing to entertain. We want to endear our audience to the Bullfrog Spas brand and provide future returns.
Samson Madsen, writer and director of The Principal, and Bullfrog Spas Creative Director commented on the process of making of the series: We were able to get incredible talent, both in front of the camera, and on the production side and it shows. Viewers today are savvy so telling the story the right way is critical, but online viewers are also very accepting of new forms so you get the freedom to experiment.

Online Marketing Manager, Jake Ricks oversees the promotional side of the project. He commented on the opportunities and challenges saying, We saw this opportunity expose the Bullfrog Spas brand to a wide audience and new demographic. Its great content with a strong appeal.
