Yacht Rock was an online video series following the fictionalized
lives and careers of American soft rock
stars of the late 1970s and early 1980s. The series debuted on Channel 101
at the June 26, 2005 screening. It placed in the top five at subsequent screenings until the June 25, 2006 screening, where it placed seventh and was canceled. The show remained a popular download on Channel 101, convincing the creators to make two additional episodes independently. The 11th episode, featuring Jason Lee
as Kevin Bacon
, debuted during a screening at the Knitting Factory
in New York City on December 27, 2007 and was later included with the other episodes on Channel 101.
On May 5, 2010, the 12th and final episode of Yacht Rock was released onto YouTube and Channel 101.
