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.”
“Kian and Jc have such a talent for parodying these characters and this world, the show is just one huge vehicle to let that talent run riot,” said Nick Shore, Chief Creative Strategist, Astronauts Wanted.
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.
I’ve posted about this series back in May 2016, read it here.

Kian Lawley is currently in Atlanta, Georgia to film his 4th movie called Boo! A Madea Halloween, written, produced, directed and starred by Tyler Perry. Along with Kian (who plays Bean Boy) other youtubers like Jc Caylen (as Mikey) and FouseyTUBE were casted. Lionsgate will release the film on October 21, 2016.
In this movie, Madea winds up in the middle of mayhem when she spends a hilarious, haunted Halloween fending off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls, and zombies while keeping a watchful eye on a group of misbehaving teens.

““It’s not something that happened overnight we had to work for it,” said Lawley of his massive fan base. (…)
The fan base of celebrities like Lawley is due to the rapid democratization of the entertainment industry, according to his manager Andrew Graham.
Graham, a senior talent manager at Big Frame, said that the audience having complete control of what, when and how they consume media partnered with the ability to give real-time feedback is key to success. Graham stated that in a few years consumers will have a larger role in shaping what is being produced, eventually becoming producers themselves.”

Tour Rehearsals: Kian spent his Saturday (Halloween) at rehearsals with Jc Caylen, Joseph Hernandez and James Yammouni.
Tour: The tour starts November 1st in Anaheim, California and it ends November 6th in Seattle, Washington. On stage, Kian and Jc will do challenges and skits just like their YouTube videos while James takes care of the music.
“I really don’t know what I’m expecting,” Lawley told the Daily Dot before their episode taped. “I’ve never had to deal with tarantulas and snakes. I’d much rather deal with pain. This is going to be a mental pain.”
Once the animals were on stage, Lawley, who kept losing challenges and having to subject himself to more creepy crawlers, drew the line at a snake and passed it off to Caylen.
“We didn’t even know what we’re signing up for,” laughed Caylen. “We did make a deal, because he hates snakes and I hate spiders.”
