YouTube is launching a new docuseries next week called Creator Spotlights — a premium-produced anthology series that will provide a window into the lives of noteworthy creators in the U.S., U.K., Korea, Japan, and beyond.
The series has already premiered abroad, with episodes surrounding the Japanese beauty creator Maataso, and three female creators in the U.K.: gamer Yammy and the lifestyle vloggers ClickForTaz and Saffron Barker. A wave of U.S.-based episodes will roll out beginning Monday featuring footballer Deestroying (pictured above), burn survivor and beauty guru Shalom Blac, basketballer Kristopher London, and interior design duo Mr. Kate.
That batch will be followed by a handful Korean Creator Spotlights, including the chef and entrepreneur Paik’s Cuisine, Korea Grandma, and beauty creator Saebyuk. A second Japanese Spotlight will arrive in January for duo VamYun, with installments from top creators in Canada and India to arrive next year.
“YouTube Originals amplify the voices and content of creators from all backgrounds, all over the world,” YouTube’s global head of original content, Susanne Daniels, said in a statement. “The Creator Spotlights series is another way we’re able to highlight our diverse creator community through premium content, and further our creators’ ability to tell their stories and grow their audience.”
Various production companies worked on the projects, including The Intellectual Property Corporation, Lighthearted Entertainment, Grain Media, Luminous Seoul, Nouvelle Médias Co., and LAMM.
