The film stars Yousef Erakat, a.k.a. fouseyTUBE (8.4 million YouTube subscribers), Viner Lele Pons and actor Justin Dobies (“Dear White People”). It began principal photography in South Carolina last week, with Huck Botko (FX’s “Married”) directing from a script by Alan Yang (“Parks and Recreation,” “Master of None”).
“We Love You” tells the tale of two best buds, Noah (Dobies) and Ford (Erakat), who fall for the same girl, Callie (Pons) and decide that she just might be cool enough to date both of them at the same time.
AwesomenessTV’s other projects for the subscription service YouTube Red, launched last fall, are the feature “Dance Camp,” which debuted last month, and the series “Foursome,” starring Jenn McAllister (a.k.a JennxPenn) and Logan Paul, which premieres on March 30.
No date has been set for the premiere of “We Love You.”
