White Collar Brawler became one of the few web series to make it to TV when it premiered on the Esquire Network last fall. The brainchild of Portal A co-founders Kai Hasson, Nate Houghteling, and Zach Blume, White Collar Brawler‘s TV run consisted of six episodes of jabs, hooks, and sweaty office workers. Apparently, the Esquire audience took a shine to that formula, because White Collar Brawler has been renewed for a second season.
The new season will likely bow sometime next fall and will feature an increased episode count. Production will move to Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn, where a new batch of meek pencil pushers will train to become fit, nimble fighters. If you want a better idea of what to expect, you can watch some clips from the first season on Esquire TV’s YouTube channel.
It has been a long journey for the series, which began as a competition between Hasson and Houghteling. The Portal A team won’t be stepping in the ring on Esquire, but they’re still plenty busy; the studio that brought us the most recent YouTube Rewind is now poking fun at dating apps on a new ad agency parody YouTube channel. You better laugh, or else Hasson and Houghteling will beat the crap out of you.
