AwesomenessTV’s ‘Expelled’ Movie Starring Cameron Dallas Coming to Netflix

/ Jan 30, 2015

Cameron Dallas Expelled

AwesomenessTV’s teen comedy, “Expelled,” is coming to Netflix. The film, which stars Vine star Cameron Dallas and a bunch of other Vine and YouTube creators, will make its SVOD streaming debut on February 1.

Written, directed, and produced by Alex Goyette, “Expelled” centers on Dallas’ character, described as a legendary prankster who seems to always charm his way out of trouble. Except after his third strike at school, he’s expelled, and now must work with his brother and friends to convince his parents he’s a stellar student.

Along with Dallas, the film stars Andrea Russett, Lia Marie Johnson, Marcus Johns, Michelle Glavan, Teala Dunn, and “True Jackson, VP” cast member Matt Shively.

The film originally debuted in a limited theatrical release last year, in conjunction with a digital on-demand release across iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Instant Video, Comcast, Target Ticket, and Vudu. For the digital and VOD release, AwesomenessTV partnered with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

“Expelled” was also available directly via its own website, which is powered by digital distribution service VHX.

Executive producers for the film include Brett Bouttier (“The Smosh Movie”), Joe Davola (“One Tree Hill,” “Smallville”), Scott Levine, Steven Spiegel, and Alan Spiegel. AwesomenessTV founder Brian Robbins (“Varsity Blues”) and Shauna Phelan (“The Smosh Movie, “Terry the Tomboy”) served as producers.

This is the latest YouTuber-led project to go to Netflix in a later window. Collective Digital Studio distributed the first two seasons of Freddie Wong’s “Video Game High School” on Netflix (and will do so again with the third season), and “Camp Takota,” an indie comedy starring Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart, and Hannah Hart, was also picked up by the streaming service after its initial VHX-powered release.
