In production now, the untitled project follows the lives of these stars, who each have millions of fans. Exploring how they rose to fame, as well as tracking their relationships and struggles, the series will focus on Kouvr Annon, Nikita Dragun, Sienna Gomez, Chase Hudson, Larri Merritt, Thomas Petrou, Alex Warren and Jack Wright. Wheelhouse Entertainment is producing, with Eric Wattenberg, Deanna Markoff, Will Nothacker, Luke Neslage and Kit Gordon serving as executive producers.
