Maker Studios, Inc. was an American worldwide Multi-channel network co-founded by Lisa Donovan, former CEO Danny Zappin, Scott Katz, Kassem Gharaibeh, Shay Carl Butler, Ben Donovan, and Philip DeFranco. Shane Dawson was also involved with Donovan and Butler during their collaboration on The Station. On March 24, 2014, Maker Studios, Inc. was acquired by The Walt Disney Company for $500 million, which could rise to $950 million, if financial milestones are met. [1] On April 14, 2014, Relativity Media submitted a competing bid of up to $1.1 billion, but Maker denied the bid. In December 2015, the company became a subsidiary of Disney Consumer Products and the Disney Interactive division of The Walt Disney Company. The Network also partnered with Fusion TV in a deal that falls under the corporate umbrella of Mouse House.

On May 2, 2017, Disney absorbed the studio into the newly formed Disney Digital Network.
