Roman Atwood Extreme Stunt Show Coming to YouTube Red

Roman Atwood, a popular and controversial YouTube prankster, stuntman and vlogger, will star in a new YouTube Red original series — which YouTube promises will take his antics to a new level of outrageousness.

Roman Atwood’s Day Dreams,” produced by digital-media company Studio71, is set to premiere Nov. 22 on YouTube Red, the video platform’s $9.99 per month subscription service.

Atwood, who has 10.5 million subscribers for his YouTube prank channel, will take on new challenges in the series with the help of his family and a team of volunteers. For example, he builds a gigantic monster-truck playground in his backyard and executes a tricycle backflip at a Nitro Circus stunt event. “Roman Atwood’s Day Dreams” comprises seven episodes, each running about 30 minutes.

“This was an opportunity for me to do something different in partnership with YouTube Red and to focus on doing great things for some amazing people,” Atwood said in a statement.

“Roman Atwood’s Day Dreams” is executive produced by Atwood and John Fitzpatrick along with Studio71’s Dan Weinstein and Rabih Gholam. Atwood’s YouTube channels are affiliated with Studio71, which is owned by Germany’s ProSiebenSat.1 Group.

Atwood has been criticized for his more shocking shenanigans. For example, his pranks on his girlfriend, Brittney Smith, in which he made her believe their young son had died in an accident, led a Washington Post critic to call him “YouTube’s most appalling prankster.”

Atwood previously starred in “Natural Born Pranksters,” a feature-length movie from Lionsgate and Studio71 released on April 1, 2016.

While the Ohio native got his start on YouTube doing pranks and stunts, he has branched into a YouTube channel documenting his family life, RomanAtwoodVlogs, which now has 13.7 million subscribers.

YouTube Red, launched two years ago, provides unlimited, ad-free access to YouTube, streaming music, and YouTube Red original movies and series. It’s currently available in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea.
