Grace Helbig To Sit Down With Powerful Women In Studio71 Facebook Series

YouTube vet Grace Helbig is going all in on Facebook Watch.

In September, Viacom Digital Studios (VDS) announced that it was readying a series starring Helbig titled Beast To Beauty, in which the noted dog lover would help New York’s ugliest pets refine their wardrobes, grooming, diet, and decor.

And now, Helbig has revealed a second Facebook Watch series dubbed Ladies First With Grace Helbig — this one produced alongside Helbig’s multi-channel network, Studio71, Variety reports. Bowing tomorrow and comprising eight episodes, the series will see the 34-year-old sitting down with other empowered women — including actress-comedian Margaret Cho, three-time Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings, and Peppermint of RuPaul’s Drag Race — to discuss how they’re making a positive impact on the world. New episodes will roll out every Tuesday at noon ET.

Ladies First is being executive produced by Studio71’s Andrew Strauser and Kalen Gorman. Studio71’s Facebook Watch slate also includes Kiss, Date, Eliminate; Sunk & Found With Man + River; and The Real Bros of Simi Valley.

In addition to her burgeoning Facebook presence, Helbig hosts two podcasts — interview series Not Too Deep and chat show This Might Get Weird with best friend and fellow creator, Mamrie Hart — on top of her longstanding YouTube presence (2.8 million subscriberes).
