Fullscreen and New Form Digital are teaming up to realize 10 fan fiction stories about some of the world’s top digital influencers in a new web series dubbed FANtasies. The anthology series will see creators like Mamrie Hart, Jon Cozart, Gabbie Hanna, and Smosh each starring in episodes inspired by over-the-top and sexually-charged fanfic culled from Wattpad and other platforms, according to Variety.
The show will bow on Fullscreen’s subscription service, which is priced at $5.99 per month, on June 22.
FANtasies will be hosted by YouTube star Drew Monson, and the first episode — a soap opera set in a hospital entitled Paging Dr. Hart — will be directed by Hart, co-starring frequent collaborators Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart. Later episodes — ranging from a musical romance to a pregnancy comedy to a found-footage horror film — will feature Andrea Russett, Brandon Rogers, Tre Melvin, Mikey Murphy, Bart Baker, and SSSniperWolf.
