“The BUILD Series is all about creating a fan-first experience,” said BUILD Series Executive Producer Suzanne Lindbergh. “No one brings you closer to pop culture in such an immersive way. This evolutionary and new BUILD Studio gives us the opportunity to innovate storytelling and share the best thought leaders across the industry.”

The BUILD Series is available across platforms and devices including on aol.com/BUILD, the BUILD Series app on Apple TV, podcasts in the iTunes store and Google Play and on Fios1 Network.
