Facebook Watch Picks Up YouTube-Born Jimmy Tatro Comedy Series

Jimmy Tatro, the YouTube star who headlined the first season of Netflix‘s hit docu-spoof American Vandal, is bringing his latest project to Facebook’s fledgling Watch video hub.

The Real Bros Of Simi Valley, a comedy about four friends attempting to figure out their floundering lives a decade after graduating from high school, first debuted on Tatro’s YouTube channel, which counts 3 million subscribers. In April 2017, Simi Valley‘s first four episodes rolled out, ultimately garnering upwards 4.5 million collective views — though the venture was put on hold amid the success of Vandal.

Now, on Nov. 30, the second season of Simi Valley, comprising 10 episodes, will debut exclusively on Facebook Watch, The Hollywood Reporter reports. Tatro is pulling quadruple duty on Simi Valley as star, co-writer, director, and executive producer. His co-writer is Christian Pierce, and the series stars fellow digital comedians Tanner Petulla, Nick Colletti, and Cody Ko.

Though Vandal was a game-changer for Tatro’s career, Netflix announced last month that it had cancelled the show after two seasons. Subsequently, Tatro has appeared on ABC’s Modern Family and lent his voice to the animated feature Smallfoot. He also recently wrapped the forthcoming Bad Education, starring Hugh Jackman.
