The new show features an ensemble cast of stars from the popular video platform, including Lepore, Jerry Purpdrank, Lele Pons, Simone Shepherd and Christian DelGrosso, as they try to make it in mainstream Hollywood.
“After much consideration, the decision was made with Curtis Lepore to mutually part ways on SoulPancake’s television project featuring Vine stars,” Wilson, who’s producing the series, posted on Facebook. “We felt this was the best decision for everyone involved. We wish Curtis all the best in all his future endeavors.”
Lepore was charged at the beginning of the year with raping his ex-girlfriend and fellow Vine star Jessi Smiles. As part of a deal he pleaded not guilty to a lesser charge of felony assault and was given 24 days community service and a year of counseling in February.
