The free, ad-supported service launched with 12 original shows, some of which tout the involvement of such industry notables as Luc Besson, Sharon Horgan, Zoe Cassavetes and Louis Leterrier. Titles include Duels, about three students who decide to take up dueling to resolve their disputes; Skinford, a supernatural drama with Silicon Valley’s Josh Brenner; and You Got Trumped, which, having been made before last election day, imagines the first 100 days of a Trump administration.
The service reportedly plans to launch a total of 50 shows this year, including new ones from Bryan Singer and James Franco.
Blackpills was co-founded by Patrick Holzman, formerly of Canal+International, and Daniel Marhely, founder of Deezer. Blackpills had already been producing content for its Vice channel. There you can find series such as Twiz and Tuck’s Bucket List and Pillow Talk.
