is one of five original Web series produced by the Independent Comedy Network, a new-media comedy brand. ICN works with talent to develop and distribute original comedy content. Founder Mark Campbell has compared the network to “a farm league” for Web series that want to make the jump to network television. In exchange for a piece of the action of new Web series, ICN.tv adds the polish of high production values and a studio-like development process to the content. The goal is to nurture user-generated content to make it more audience-ready and advertiser-friendly. Whether or not “2/8 Life” is network material, they’re spreading their bets. The company has as many as 40 potential projects on its radar.
