Fullscreen’s ‘FANtasies’

Subscription streaming service Fullscreen today launches FANtasies, a 10-episode anthology series based on fanfiction from Wattpad and other social platforms.

The first episode, a hospital-based soap opera titled “Paging Dr. Hart,’ stars the YouTube-spawned “holy trinity” of Mamrie Hart (who also directs), Hannah Hart (no relation) and Grace Helbig (who wrote the original 30-chapter story of the same title, which you can read on Wattpad). The three have also co-starred in two comedy features: Dirty 30 (2016) and Camp Takota (2014).

In lieu of a clip from their FANtasies episode, here are Hart, Hart and Helbig from an episode of Comedy Central’s @midnight with Chris Hardwick:

The FANtasies series is hosted by yet another YouTube star, Drew Monson (who also had a role in Dirty 30).

Other episodes – all “starring the talent who inspired the stor[ies]” and “a rotating cast of digital stars and creators” — include a musical romance, a pregnancy comedy, and found-footage horror.

Fullscreen, which costs $5.99 per month, is available via the web, iOS, Android and Chromecast. For more info or to subscribe, visit www.fullscreen.com.
