IAC’s Readying For Content Acquisitions?

(sub. req.) A small note in the latest BW magazine: As we covered earlier, Diller’s IAC has hired a content guy to develop original content for its various properties. Michael Jackson, the British TV exec who was hired, started getting pitches from investment bankers within a few hours of his hiring.

What’s Jackson targeting? “We’d like to look for a site like AtomFilms or IFilms.” Of course the latter was bought by Viacom last year. Atom CEO Mika Salmi says IAC hasn’t rung, “but if they do, we’ll add them to the others who have called.”
