The Fine Brothers are slowly turning into online media moguls.

On Wednesday, Fine Brothers Entertainment (FBE) announced it will fund between six and 12 new short-form series for its YouTube channels.

The new shows will be a combination of internally developed concepts and pitches from third-party creators and producers. Most will be ordered in small episodic batches of three to five, with larger orders to follow if they’re successful.

FBE is headed by siblings Benny and Rafi Fine began, who began posting videos on YouTube in 2007. Since then, they have racked up in excess of 15 million subscribers on the platform with such shows as Teens React, Kids React, Last Moments and Emo Dad.

Earlier this month, FBE hired reality TV vet Brandie Tucker as VP of alternative television, overseeing its non-­scripted TV development and production slate. The company is currently developing a topical panel show with SundanceTV, and it plans to be in production on two feature films later this year.

Additionally, TruTV recently announced a 10-episode order of Six Degrees of Everything, hosted by Benny and Rafi Fine, which will air this summer.
