RocketJump is signaling a push into scripted TV with new sci-fi anthology series Dimension 404. The hourlong six-episode series from RocketJump and Lionsgate explores “the wonders and horrors of our digital age” for premiere exclusively on Hulu.
Impelled by the Internet’s notorious “404” error code, Dimension 404 aims to evoke that 3 a.m. feeling of wandering onto the weird side of the web, stumbling upon stories that cannot be explained in the world that we know.
“As the fourth series with our wonderful partners at Hulu, we are very excited to bring Dimension 404 to life,” said Lionsgate Television Group Chairman Kevin Beggs. “RocketJump’s Freddie Wong, Matthew Arnold and Creator/Showrunner Dez Dolly have tapped directly into the digital consumer zeitgeist with their distinctive vision and special, kinetic brand of creativity. We feel that the RocketJump team is uniquely positioned to bring digital viewers a fresh take on all the wild things that amaze and scare us today.”
“Inspired by our favorite anthologies and the notion that the web is a truly strange place where anything is possible, we’ve let our imaginations run wild and created a show that takes the viewer on a journey through the sci-fi genre; from mind-bending action-adventure to outrageous horror-comedy, Dimension 404 has it all,” said series creator/executive producer/RocketJump Co-Founder Dez Dolly.
RocketJump’s breakout action comedy YouTube series Video Game High School generated over 84 million views within its first two seasons. Long-form comedy series RocketJump: The Show marked RocketJump’s first series for Hulu and first series to premiere off the YouTube network. After premiering in December 2015, all eight full episodes have been released exclusively on Hulu, with the newly-created shorts premiering exclusively on Hulu on a weekly basis.
Dimension 404 is created by Dolly, who will also serve as showrunner, and Will Campos. Co-Creators are Dan Johnson and David Welch. Series is executive produced and directed by Freddie Wong, Matthew Arnold and Dolly.
