Listen up, Nationeers: Kaleb Nation is heading from the computer screen to your television screen!
KK&P Productions announced this morning that they’ve secured a reality television show deal with Kaleb, who’s had a huge presence on YouTube over the past few years.
The press release sheds a little light on what you can expect from the show:
Mark Morgan (“The Twilight Saga”), NYT bestselling author Kami Garcia (“The Beautiful Creatures Series” & “Unbreakable”), Michael Pollack (“Black Forest”) and Brett Hudson (“Cloud 9”) are giving the YouTube Generation its first reality show, KALEB’S NATION, starring YouTube personality Kaleb Nation. Nation will also produce, and Hudson will direct.
The show will follow Kaleb Nation, as he develops the parodies, music videos, and pop culture commentary that have garnered over 28 million views on his YouTube channel, while throwing Nation into a totally new arena—Hollywood. Celebrities and other YouTube personalities will guest star, while Nation experiences a behind the scenes look at what it takes to make it on, and off, the red carpet. The producers are keeping the details under lock and key, but we were able to get a few comments.
According to Kami Garcia, “Anyone who watches Kaleb’s videos will immediately see the potential of the show, and I’m excited to be part of it.” Mark Morgan added, “I find Kaleb to be a fascinating and highly entertaining piece of talent. This is more than a TV show. Kaleb is a brand in and unto himself, and I am happy to be working with someone who has his finger on the pulse of current pop culture.”
This is one of the first times a YouTuber has taken a big step forward into television, and we can’t wait to see what Kaleb and KK&P come up with! A release date and place to watch have not been revealed yet since they’re still early in the production process, but we’ll keep you updated.
You can see Kaleb here on Twitter and here on YouTube. Also be sure to check out his Twimore site (a spoof of Pottermore).
