Miranda Sings, real name is Colleen Ballinger-Evans, will partner with Netflix for Haters Back Off, a half-hour sitcom following an talentless star on the rise. She announced the series on her own YouTube channel with a vlog titled, “I’m Pregnant!”
In addition to her popular YouTube clips, Ballinger-Evans also notably appeared on Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, and Seinfeld took Ballinger-Evans along for an appearance on a Tonight Show appearance.
Netflix has given Ballinger-Evans an eight-episode order for the series. This is not the first network that’s given a chance to a YouTuber. Grace Helbig helmed a weekly talk show for E! last year, and the RocketJump team recently finished an eight-episode stint on Hulu.
