Machinima ‘Bacca Chronicles’ Series Featuring YouTube Star JeromeASF Sets Verizon Go90 Sponsorship

Machinima will launch a new original series, “The Bacca Chronicles,” featuring the voice talent of popular YouTube gaming vlogger JeromeASF, on Nov. 23 exclusively sponsored by Verizon’s Go90 free mobile-video service.

The 10-episode animated show is based on the Bacca character created by JeromeASF (real name: Jerome Aceti), who has 3.8 million YouTube subscribers for his videos revolving around “Minecraft.”

A range of other YouTube personalities will voice characters in the series, including ChimneySwift11 (1.9 million YouTube subscribers), TheZombiUnicorn (190,000 subscribers), Gizzy Gazza (1 million subscribers), Logdotzip (810,000 YouTube subscribers) and comedic actor Eddie Pepitone (“Old School,” “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”).

“Bacca Chronicles” is co-written by N00b Adventures creator Jim Schwertfeger. The show details the adventures of four characters (Kyle, Bacca, Allison and Mod Gary) who try to maintain peace and justice in the crazy world of a computer server dedicated to a top online game.

Episodes of “Bacca Chronicles” and show-related content will launch across JeromeASF and Machinima’s relevant social-video channels, including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and run through Dec. 31.

Verizon launched the Go90 service, aimed at millennial, mobile-heavy users, in October. The service includes full-length TV episodes and short-form content from partners including AwesomenessTV, Viacom, Discovery Communications, Scripps Networks Interactive, ESPN, CBS Sports, Univision, New Form Digital and Disney’s Maker Studios.
