Fullscreen Announces Fall Programming Slate of New Originals

Fullscreen today announced original programming for fall 2017 including four new original series as well as the previously announced "Alive in Denver" starring Nathan Kress ("iCarly") and Danielle Campbell ("The Originals") set to premiere later this year.

"Building on the momentum from a strong first half of the year, we are thrilled with our new slate of shows featuring more strong personalities, unique storytelling and boundary-pushing creativity" said Scott Reich, Senior Vice President of Programming, Fullscreen.

Fullscreen is setting the stage for those warm end-of-summer nights with the pickup of the following hot new series: "Jay Versace is Stuck in the 90s," follows Jay Versace, as he is sent back in time to his favorite decade and must work to get home using only the technology of the day - it promises to be all that and a bag of chips; "Fox Tossing," with the internet's favorite fearless goofballs Scotty Sire (3.7MM+ connections) and Elton Castee (1.6MM+ connections) as they play all the ridiculous sports that have been lost to history; "The Skeptics Guide to Wellness," joins host Jaclyn Glenn (1MM connections) as she sets her mistrust loose on the wide world of alternative wellness, tackling topics including cryotherapy and hypnosis; "Living Rooms," the scripted comedy follows Beth (Alyx Weiss, 1MM+ connections), who after being hit by a taco truck and smoking pot, discovers that she has the unique and bizarre ability to talk with furniture and the previously announced scripted comedy "Alive in Denver," which follows a group of friends the night before the apocalypse who reveal their deepest SECRETS to each other only to have the world not end, leaving this tight-knit group hilariously dealing with the consequences.

Fullscreen will release new episodes of popular talk series including "Suck Less with Willam" with upcoming guests Courtney Act and House of Avalon while Joey Graceffa and Brandon Rogers stop by the recently redesigned "Shane & Friends" stage. These shows join Fullscreen's robust slate of originals, including critically acclaimed "Magic Funhouse," breakout hit "FANtasies," boundary pushing "Hella Gay with Miles Mckenna," along with the LOL-worthy "H8TERS" starring Kian Lawley and Jc Caylen.

NEW SERIES

"JAY VERSACE IS STUCK IN THE 90S" to Premiere Fall 2017

Jay Versace, "the funniest teenager on the internet" (Fader.com), is the king of 90s nostalgia and his unique sense of fashion and bold aesthetic make this funny man a true original. Jay in his new series, after a freak accident involving a digital pet in a lighting storm, is sent back to a time before internet celebrity, the sharing economy and smart phones. Now, to get back to 2017, he'll have to complete tasks using only the tools, technology, clothing and products accessible to every lucky 90's kid. From shooting a collab video with a camcorder and two VCRs to becoming internet famous before the creation of social media, Jay has to learn to survive the decade that brought us light up sneakers, the pager and boy bands.

"FOX TOSSING" to Premiere Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Sports have brought mankind together in competition since the dawn of time, and while we still play many of them, there are hundreds you may have never heard of before having been lost to history. The internet's favorite fearless goofballs, Scotty Sire and Elton Castee are on a mission to play all the ridiculous and mind boggling sports that were too dumb or dangerous to survive. From using ten-foot helium balloons to compete in a distance-floating challenge, to attempting a long jump over 14 barrels on ice skates, to playing a potentially decapitating version of polo on mopeds; no puck, ball or coccyx is safe. Be sure to check out the first look video for more balls-to-the-wall excitement.
