Brat, a teen-leaning production studio founded by Rob Fishman — who also launched the Twitter-owned influencer marketing company Niche — has unveiled its latest original series, Sheltered.
Starring 18-year-old lifestyle vlogger Nazanin Kavari, Sheltered is a send-up of vlogger culture, and chronicles the adventures of a YouTube beauty guru who remains desperately dedicated to posting even in a post-apocalytpic world. Nate Wyatt co-stars as Kavari’s on-again/off-again boyfriend. The first two episodes of the series — which were directed by Asher Levin, written by Jenny Jaffe, and produced by Brat alongside Nazanin’s manager, Triana Lavey — are currently available on the company’s YouTube channel.

Brat — which launched last March with a music video starring Musical.ly superstars Kristen Hancher, Raegan Beast, and Piper Rockelle in honor of the International Transgender Day of Visibility — has subsequently rolled out a growing slate of original shows starring buzzy digital creators.
The studio’s first series, Misshaps, stars Hancher — who has 16 million fans on Musical.ly — and is described by Teen Vogue as a modern-day take on I Love Lucy. Brat has also created the high school comedy Too Cool For School starring beauty vlogger Siena Mirabella and The Pain Of Painting with Jason Nash — an interview show in which Nash and guests test out their artistic skills.
