JAY VERSACE IS STUCK IN THE 90S to Premiere Fall 2017
Jay Versace, “the funniest teenager on the internet” (Fader.com), is the king of 90s nostalgia and his unique sense of fashion and bold aesthetic make this funny man a true original. Jay in his new series, after a freak accident involving a digital pet in a lighting storm, is sent back to a time before internet celebrity, the sharing economy and smart phones. Now, to get back to 2017, he’ll have to complete tasks using only the tools, technology, clothing and products accessible to every lucky 90’s kid. From shooting a collab video with a camcorder and two VCRs to becoming internet famous before the creation of social media, Jay has to learn to survive the decade that brought us light up sneakers, the pager and boy bands.

FOX TOSSING to Premiere Wednesday, August 16, 2017
Sports have brought mankind together in competition since the dawn of time, and while we still play many of them, there are hundreds you may have never heard of before having been lost to history. The internet’s favorite fearless goofballs, Scotty Sire and Elton Castee are on a mission to play all the ridiculous and mind boggling sports that were too dumb or dangerous to survive. From using ten-foot helium balloons to compete in a distance-floating challenge, to attempting a long jump over 14 barrels on ice skates, to playing a potentially decapitating version of polo on mopeds; no puck, ball or coccyx is safe. Be sure to check out the first look video for more balls-to-the-wall excitement.
