Miranda Sings in ‘Haters Back Off’: First Look at Netflix Oddball Family Sitcom

Netflix has released the first images from “Haters Back Off,” the comedy series that tells the origin story of Miranda Sings, the self-absorbed, untalented, teenager-ish YouTube singer created by Colleen Ballinger.

The eight-episode “Haters Back Off” will be released Oct. 14 at 12:01 am PT on Netflix. The series was filmed in Vancouver this spring, with the location standing in for Miranda’s hometown of Tacoma, Wash.

“Haters Back Off,” which takes its name from an early Miranda Sings catchphrase, keys off a range antecedents including “Napoleon Dynamite” and Pee-wee Herman. The story delves into her family life and follows her unlikely rise to digital stardom powered by her unshakable belief that she was born famous but that nobody knows it yet.

For Netflix, the series is the first big bet on an original built around a digital influencer, and aims to reach a crossover audience of not only young Miranda Sings fans but their parents as well. The streamer also is produced a docu-series featuring social-media celeb Cameron Dallas.

The series stars Colleen Ballinger as Miranda Sings, Steve Little (“Eastbound & Down”) as Miranda’s overly confident and utterly misguided Uncle Jim, Angela Kinsey (“The Office”) as Miranda’s mom, Bethany, and Erik Stocklin as Miranda’s neighbor and best friend, Patrick.

Colleen Ballinger, Christopher Ballinger, Perry Rein, Gigi McCreery, Jeff Kwatinetz and Josh Barry serve as executive producers. “Haters Back Off” is produced by Brightlight Pictures.
