Smoshtober is here, and it’s bringing a bunch of new shows with it.
That’s the name for the deluge of original series from Smosh—the comedy duo of Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla—and its ensemble cast. In partnership with Defy Media, which co-produced Smosh’s 2015 movie, they’re rolling out five new Smosh-centric comedy and gaming series, including sketch-comedy show The Big What If and and science series Smosh Lab. This is after Defy secured a staggering $70 million in financing this summer.
Hecox and Padilla have been building their partnership with Defy for a few years now, rolling out the series Every [Blank] Ever and Part Timers in 2015. This summer, they debuted a livestreamed sketch comedy show on YouTube.
The series will debut on YouTube as well as Defy Media’s site and platforms like go90 and Amazon Prime.
