Great news, wine lovers! 

Comedian Matt Bellassai—who you may know from the weekly BuzzFeed webseries where he “gets drunk at [his] desk and complains about stuff”—is about to have a lot more projects for you to follow. 

Variety announced Tuesday that the Whine About It vlogger has signed to CAA, and that his series will soon be taking a hiatus so he can focus on a book, a podcast, and other new projects. 

For anyone worried about Whine About It cutting off mid-season: Don’t! Bellassai has a finale episode in the works to hold everyone over during the hiatus.
