YouTube’s Joe Penna Makes the Move to TV
Another YouTube star to make the jump (or more like step, these days) to TV is Joe Penna, perhaps better known as Mystery Guitar Man on the video platform. He will host “Xploration Earth 2050,” a show that discusses the future of technology.
“Xploration Earth 2050” is part of the Xploration Station programming block. Spanning two hours, it will cover scientific topics in the areas of technology, space, earth, and animals.
While other Xploration Station shows include “Xploration Awesome Planet,” “Xploration Outer Space,” and “Xploration Animal Science,” it’s appropriate that a YouTube star will take on technology. If it’s how Penna achieved his success, marked by over 2.8 million YouTube subscribers, he should have a thing or two to say about it.
Set to premiere on Fox in September, “Xploration 2050” will run for half-hour segments on weekend mornings. Here’s a sneak peak for the whole programming block:
