YouTube Star Liza Koshy is trying to turn her side hustle into her main hustle in a new YouTube Red series Liza On Demand.
The half-hour comedy will follow her chaotic misadventures as she tries to make a career in Los Angeles by juggling various gigs and odd jobs—from professional mourner, to being asked to put down someone’s cat—in her quest to climb the ranks and become an “elite tasker.”
Co-stars include Kimiko Glenn (Orange is the New Black, Waitress) and Travis Coles (Superstore).
Koshy is known as a quickly rising YouTube star who’s channel surpassed 10 million subscribers in just under two years, and has currently ammassed more than 1.5 billion lifetime views.
The promo for the eight-episode series debuted days after she and boyfriend David Dobrik decided to break up. The two shocked fans by revealing the news in a video, which was trending.
Liza On Demand is executive produced by Koshy, and written by Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont (Josie & The Pussycats, Mary + Jane). It s produced by Above Average productions. It premieres June 27 on YouTube, and will stream on Koshy’s YouTube channel.
