Liza Koshy to Star in YouTube Red Comedy Series ‘Liza on Demand’ Premiering in 2018

Digital star Liza Koshy will topline comedy series “Liza on Demand” on YouTube Red, following the chaotic misadventures of the eponymous character’s work life.

Koshy, who rose to popularity on Vine, is immensely popular on YouTube, with her two channels garnering more than 17.3 million subscribers and over 1.5 billion views.

The eight episode, half-hour “Liza on Demand” will premiere on YouTube Red, Google’s $10-per-month subscription service, in 2018. In the show, Liza takes on various gigs, tasks and odd jobs in her quest to climb the ranks and become an “elite tasker.”

Koshy also is executive producing the show, alongside writers Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont (“Josie & The Pussycats” and “Mary + Jane”). Courtney Carter will serve as an additional executive producer and Sam Childs will serve as producer. “Liza on Demand” will be produced by Above Average, a digital-first comedy studio founded by Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video.

“I can’t wait to bring #LizaOnDemand to my YouTube audience and hopefully a new audience too,” said Koshy. “Deborah Kaplan, Harry Elfont and Above Average are a dream to work with and this show is going to be so fun for folks of all ages, colors creeds and backgrounds.”

Koshy previously starred in YouTube Red’s 2016 holiday comedy special “Jingle Ballin'” from Above Average and appeared in season 2 of “Escape the Night” hosted by Joey Graceffa.

Liza Koshy is an imaginative entertainer who loves to bring the audience along for the ride — and when she commits to a character, she is not afraid to go for it,” said Susanne Daniels, YouTube’s global head of original content. “Her meteoric rise on YouTube is proof that her style of comedy is resonating with millions of fans.”

Koshy is repped by CAA, Carter Media Group and Hansen Jacobson.

Last year, Koshy signed a deal with AwesomenessTV to be part of its creator network and won the “breakout creator” honor at the 2016 Streamy Awards.
