The Toronto prodco has started production on its first-ever original for the subscription streamer.
Toronto-based 9 Story Media Group has started production on its first original series for subscription streamer YouTube Red.
Furze World Wonders follows YouTube star and garage inventor Colin Furze as he whips up unique creations to help other people (like a water rocket for a brother/sister duo looking to achieve a Guinness World Record, for example). The 10-episode, half-hour series is currently filming in the Toronto area. It will be available to subscribers on YouTube Red and the YouTube Kids app in the fall, though no specific release details have been announced.
The live-action family series is produced by Barry Davis (Canada’s Smartest Person), directed by Jeff Thrasher (Amazing Race Canada) and exec produced by Furze. Producing for 9 Story are Vince Commisso, Tanya Green and Natalie Dumoulin.
YouTube launched its SVOD service in 2015. Currently available in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and Korea, the service offers subscribers access to original movies and series, as well as ad-free experiences across its platforms.
