YouTube unveils buffet of new series, and plans for virtual reality
YouTubers Rhett and Link hosted the keynote, which involved the drinking of unsavory liquids and appearances from Jenn McAllister and Swoozie. In addition to attendance numbers, YouTube’s push for VR was also unveiled. It’s called VR180 and would allow creators to make 180-degree videos.
And despite rumors of its demise, YouTube Red will debut new series this year. YouTube Head of Comedy Ben Relles previewed returning seasons of McAllister’s Foursome and Rhett & Link’s Buddy System, as well as new shows Lace Up: The Ultimate Sneaker Challenge; Good Game; Lifeline; and Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television, starring Hansen (Party Down) and Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale). A scripted series from Rob Huebel (Transparent) called Do You Want To See a Dead Body? is also set to debut.
YouTube Red’s 37 original series and films have seen close to a quarter billion views.
