Deadline just released more information on the new series “H8TERS”, produced by Astronauts Wanted.
“The shot-in-L.A. series will be available exclusively on Fullscreen, the commercial-free subscription service available via iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Android phones and tablets, Chromecast and online at Fullscreen.com.”

The H8TERS follows Lawley and Caylen in “heightened” versions of themselves as well as their own biggest haters, Frank and Zweeb, video game store employees obsessed with taking down the social media stars.
“Fullscreen has had many years of collaboration with Kian and Jc and this series is a hilarious evolution of their creative voices,” said Scott Reich, Senior Vice President of Programming, Fullscreen.

Back in October, while on a fan screening release of his second movie Shovel Buddies, Kian gave ET Online an interview about how he jumped from YouTube to the big screen.
“Whether it’s singing, modeling, acting, you name it, they always label you as the YouTuber, the social media kid, the social media star. It’s something that I’ve heard — a lot — but I kind of just put it to the side.”
“If I want to act, I’m gonna act. And if I consider myself an actor, that’s all that matters to me,” he says. “I get referred to as the social media kid on set, but I don’t let it bother me.” He pauses and then adds: “I try not to.”
“Acting was for sure my main goal in life. That was my ambition. That was my, like, passion from a young age,” he explains to ET. “I grew up watching Jim Carrey and I was like, ‘I want to be like him. I want to do what exactly what he does.’ YouTube was just a platform, kind of like a trampoline to, like, bounce into it at a faster rate. You know what I mean?”
“I’m known as a person who, like, steps out of the comfort zone,” he explains. “Who kind of breaks the rules and crosses the line in the sense of making YouTube videos. I don’t really follow the rules of like — not traditional, but how everyone does YouTube. And it’s kind of made me more cautious and conscious of what I put into my videos. Like, I’m looking out for stuff that could hurt me in the future or could possibly be bad for my– You know…” He tosses his hands in the air as he tries to think of another way to phrase it, but ultimately fails. “My brand. Or my career. I’m just kind of aware of how I make my videos now. I act like a kid and I feel like I need to grow up a little bit. A little bit. Not too much.”
