FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hang With Inc., a subsidiary of MEDL Mobile, Inc. (MEDL), announced today that Bill Horn and Scout Masterson - also known as the "Guncles" on the hit reality show Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood and frequent guests on such other shows as Giuliana & Bill, Tia & Tamera, Blinging Up Baby and Rachel vs. Guy - have joined the "Hang w/" platform.
The Hang w/ mobile app connects people around the globe through live streaming video and simultaneous chat - allowing hundreds, thousands and eventually millions of users to "Hang with" their favorite people in real time. The platform will be monetized via a fully integrated advertising model. The app has already been downloaded more than 500,000 times and has generated more than 10,000,000 user sessions.
Bill and Scout and their daughter, Simone, have developed a loyal following and are the first gay family to regularly appear on a reality TV show. Fans of Tori and Dean have followed the Guncles' journey as they've married, dealt with the struggles of adoption, and raised a child of their own.
"The Tori and Dean show gave us an opportunity to share the challenges and joys of fatherhood and open people's eyes to a broader meaning of family," said Bill Masterson. "Now Hang With gives us a chance to connect with fans in a new and unique way and to document our future journeys in a way that's never before been possible. We look forward to connecting with our fans on a deeper level - and inviting them behind the curtain as we begin the adoption process again so Simone can experience the joys of being a sibling."
The two also have a successful boutique event planning and marketing firm, Marque Communications, which focuses on their passion for children's products and event planning for celebrity families. Scout and Bill plan to integrate Hang w/ into Marque's marketing and event business as well.
"We are excited to welcome Bill and Scout to Hang With," said Dave Swartz, President and Chief Creative Officer of MEDL Mobile and Hang With. "As a father myself, I think it's incredibly brave that the Guncles are willing to share their trials, tribulations, joys and special moments with our growing audience. And we believe they'll expand the platform's audience as well."
To date, the Hang w/ platform has attracted more than 80 celebrities and athletes including 50 Cent, Timbaland, Kaskade, Paula Abdul, Terrell Owens, Cheech and Chong, Shaun T and Jamie Kennedy.
