The first season of The Fine Brothers' web series, MyMusic premiered on April 15, 2012 and ended on January 6, 2013. The series is based on a concept that the Fine Brothers originally developed for a television airing. Sometime afterwards, the concept was adapted for YouTube.[1] MyMusic was the main show on the MyMusicShow YouTube channel, which was one of the first 100 original channels.[2]

Plot[edit]

The first season of MyMusic, a mockumentary, documented the antics of MyMusic, a transmedia production company.[3] The staff members refer to each other by music genres which they associate each other with, rather than their real names. CEO and founder Indie heads the team. The company claims to have been given the YouTube original channel, and has a documentary crew filming them day to day. The first season's events and plot were recapped by the Fine Brothers, prior to the second season.[4]
