Lionsgate Brings RocketJump’s ‘Dimension 404’ Sci-Fi Series to Hulu

Hulu is again jumping on a production from digital studio RocketJump, picking up its scripted sci-fi anthology series “Dimension 404” in a deal with Lionsgate.

Dimension 404,” inspired by the Web’s “404” page-not-found error code, will premiere exclusively on Hulu.

In December, Hulu debuted half-hour docu-comedy series “RocketJump: The Show,” based on the action-comedy short films of RocketJump’s Freddie Wong, produced with Lionsgate. The project was RocketJump’s first series to premiere exclusively off YouTube, where it has nearly 8 million subscribers and launched its breakout action-comedy series “Video Game High School.”

“Dimension 404,” which will comprise six one-hour episodes, is pitched as a kind of “Twilight Zone” for the Internet age complete with a twist ending. Each episode will explore a different bizarre topic; in one, an obscure cartoon may hold the secret to time travel, and in another, energy drinks might have caused a global apocalypse.

The series is created by Dez Dolly and Will Campos along with co-creators Dan Johnson and David Welch. The series is exec produced and directed by Freddie Wong, Matthew Arnold and Dez Dolly, who also serves as showrunner.

RocketJump has “tapped directly into the digital consumer zeitgeist with their distinctive vision and special, kinetic brand of creativity,” Lionsgate Television Group chairman Kevin Beggs said in a statement.

Added Dolly, “Inspired by our favorite anthologies and the notion that the Web is a truly strange place where anything is possible, we’ve let our imaginations run wild and created a show that takes the viewer on a journey through the sci-fi genre.”
