After a highly successful debut back in February this year, YouTube Red is already storming onto it’s next original series that are already due for release on the 30th of March. With brand new, sparkly trailers, say hello to the second round of YouTube Red Original programming, fronted by Prank Academy and Foursome.
Prank Academy is the brain child behind two of the original OG’s of pranking back in YouTube’s early days, PrankvsPrank’s Jesse Wellens and Jeana Smith. By teaching other YouTubers how to pull off “epic, crazy and dope freshness” pranks as well as tricking each other into elaborate situations, this show promises to deliver a ridiculous amount of laughs. The Prank Academy teaser trailer features Lilly Singh smashing someone over the head with a pole, plus iJustine and Joey Graceffa witnessing a man set on literal fire. What more could you possibly need out of your YouTube Red subscription?
The second show to receive a debut date is Foursome, a sex-centric TV show that follows one girls struggle to get *some* during her time at high school. Giving off a clear American Pie vibe, the six-episode show follows Jenn McAllister and her friends (a.k.a her Foursome) through the trials and tribulations of trying to hook up and live her life, but with a very controlling brother played by Logan Paul.
One of the highlights of the trailer is Jenn’s Shakespearean summation of her virginity; “Bros before hoes, except I’ll never be a ho because of my bro”. The show promises parties, sex, scandal, family drama and squad goals as Viners Rickey Thompson and Marcus Johns join Jenn’s crew. Here’s some very important high school philosophy for you, courtesy of the Foursome teaser trailer below; “High school’s like a good selfie; you can do it on your own but if you really want to crush it, you have to surround yourself with your best friends”. Amen!
Also coming up from YouTube Red is Gigi Gorgeous’ transgender transitional documentary and Toby Turner’s comedy series about life as a YouTuber. When more details are announced, we’ll keep you updated!
