AwesomenessTV’s new scripted show “Versus” is coming to go90. The six episode series follows the journey of two rival lacrosse players, Madison and Lauren, who are forced to play on the same team during a summer tournament. Camille Hyde (“American Vandal”) has been cast as Madison, and Maddie McCormick (“Camera Store”) as Lauren.
Other actors involved with the project include Kirsten Nelson (“Psych”), Claudia Sulewski (“[email protected]”), Megan Nicole (“Summer Forever”), Mallory Low (“Ad Astra”), Aric Generette (“Underdogs”), Brandon Larracuente (“13 Reasons Why”), Peyton Meyer (“Girl Meets World”), Moe Irvin (“Grey’s Anatomy”), and Anjelika Washington (“Shameless”).
The episodes, which AwesomenessTV has described as long-form, will be distributed on Verizon’s go90 platform later this year.
Back in 2016, Verizon acquired a 24.5 percent stake in AwesomenessTV with plans to launch a premium video service with the network. Unfortunately, those plans came to a halt earlier this year at the same time AwesomenessTV cut ties with content chief Samie Kim Falvey, who came to Awesomeness from ABC Comedy in late summer 2016.
Other owners of the company include Pixar Animations (51%) and Hearst (24.5%).
