Charlie and Harry Davies-Carr, the two young stars of “Charlie Bit My Finger,” are now getting their own Web series, Social Times reported.

The children, now six and eight respectively, will star in an original show in a new deal with Viral Spiral, a viral video management firm. Rightster will handle online distribution of the new series.

It has been five years since Charlie and Harry’s father recorded the 56-second video that made the kids famous. Since its web debut in 2007, it has become one of the most famous viral videos in YouTube history and is currently the 7th most-viewed video of all time.

There is not much information out on the series yet, but it might include a viral video review show from the children called Kings of YouTube (similar to the Fine Brothers’s Kids React series) along with a few other formats, Tubefilter reports.

“We’ve taken the lead of their dad,” Viral Spiral CEO Damien Collier said in a statement. “We don’t apply any pressure—quite the opposite. There’s always been a desire from the boys and their father to do more. They have a lot of home movies already online. The boys are naturals in front of the camera and wanted to do more.”

Charlie and Harry’s father have uploaded multiple home videos of the boys (along with their younger brother, Jasper,) to their YouTube channel. This aim of the channel is to capture the boys’ everyday life without being too invasive. None of the videos have gotten anywhere near the view numbers of the original “Charlie Bit My Finger” video.

Mashable reported in March that the Davies-Carr family have made an estimated $500,000 in five years from the video from YouTube ads and TV spots. They have also a blog, T-shirt and official app.
