KateModern was the sister series of lonelygirl15. The series, which was announced on April 16, 2007, began filming on July 9 and the first video, Fight and Flight, was released on July 16. The show is produced by EQAL in partnership with Bebo. It ended on June 28, 2008, slightly less than a year following its original release.

KateModern is set in East London, England, and bears many similarities to its parent series. Both Kate and Bree are avid video bloggers and carry a dark secret. The series takes the ongoing story from the lonelygirl15 series, transposing it against a London backdrop. Major plot lines and story arcs are related between both series. Several characters from both series have communicated with each other, and a formal two-week cross-over was run between them in April 2008.

There is an alternate reality game component of the series as well.

KateModern was the second interactive online series developed by LG15 Studios. Like lonelygirl15, KateModern included product integration as an original marketing solution.[1] KateModern was the first truly interactive show online, which utilizes the tools available on Bebo to help fans interact.

KateModern videos first appeared on Bebo and lg15.com, then with a delay of at least 24 hours on YouTube. Ratings for the show's first season were extremely successful, and it continued to rise in popularity in its second. See ratings below.

Season 1: (2007)

Season one followed a young avid blogger, Kate, and her friends as she discovers the truth behind the meaning of her abnormal blood type "trait positive" and the secret organization after it. This was from the creators of lonelygirl15, the extremely popular online internet video-log. In its first season, it garnered more than 1.5 million viewers a week [2], receiving over 35 million views between the time of its launch and the season one finale, according to its producers. [3]

Season 2: (2008)

Season two continued the adventures of Kate's friends as they try to discover who killed Kate in the season 1 finale. It rose in popularity, at one point garnering up to 2.5 million viewers a week.

A twelve-hour marathon entitled "Precious Blood" took place on April 5, 2008 in which viewers could give advice to Charlie and the other characters. Despite the show's popularity, the creators decided to cut the series off at the culmination of its second season with a second twelve-hour marathon entitled "The Last Work" on June 28, 2008.
