Remember Periscope? People are still using it, and one user in particular is set to become the livestreaming app’s first “star.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, UTA has signed artist Amanda Oleander, the first major talent pulled from Periscope. Platforms like Snapchat have gotten in on the original content game, so it was only a matter of time before Periscope yielded talent that could translate outside the app. THR says UTA is set to “expand her brand both online as well as in more traditional areas of entertainment.”

Oleander, who’s also E!’s online illustrator, often spotlights her artistic process on Periscope, where she currently has more than 250,000 followers. 

There’s no word yet as to how Oleander’s feed will be incorporated into this new deal, but we totally would have watched a reality show about what’s in people’s fridges.  

We’ve reached out to Oleander for comment and will update if and when we hear back.
