There has been a lot of controversy surrounding ‘YouTube Red’ since it launched earlier this year. Some creators have completely refused to use the platform that you have to pay for, whereas others have embraced this new aspect of creativity. But now, the YouTube subscription service is offering their own original series’ starring our favourite Internet stars – and it’s making us wish we could get it in the UK.
The most recent addition to the long list of YouTube Red originals is Joey Graceffa‘s ‘Escape The Night’, the highly anticipated Murder Mystery series set in the 1920s. The list of fellow YouTubers starring in Joey’s newest project is never ending, but get ready to see the likes of Shane Dawson, Oli White and GloZell Green make their YouTube Red debut. Both Joey and the subscription service have been teasing at it’s launch over the past week and it has officially been released today (Wednesday, 22 June) for YouTube Red subscribers.
Luckily for you, we have been given a sneak peak at the first episode, but there’s still not much we know about the series so far. We’ve already gathered that it’s going to be a hybrid of scripted performances and reality show style eliminations, with your favourite YouTubers being voted off the show; but there will also be clues and challenges throughout the ten part series to determine who killed who. So, prepare to see one of your favourites die, as Joey Graceffa tells us in the trailer “this blame game is going to be the death of us.”
Even though YouTube Red is only currently available in America, the rest of the world can still get their hands on it. So, never fear, if you’re not in the US and you can’t sign up for YouTube’s newest subscription service, all of their original series’ are available to buy either from Google, or YouTube itself, depending on what country you’re in.
We’re so excited to get our hands on the ten part series, but the most important question is… Who did it?
