You will be surprised to know, Jake Paul, who is a brother of in-famous vlogger Logan Paul, is currently working on the development of a talk show in collaboration with YouTube Red.
The Hollywood Reporter reported that the talk show is developed to have the feel of a late-night variety show, although YouTube Red doesn’t have any programming block.
A spokeswoman for YouTube confirmed about the project on Thursday. The spokeswoman said in a statement: “Last year, we engaged in early development deals with a handful of YouTube creators as part of our normal process to evaluate new creative ideas. There is no series order currently in place.”
Ben Silverman and Howard T. Owens’ Propagate Content with Five All will produce the talk show, which is currently without a title, in the Fifth Entertainment and Douglas Banker executive producing. The show, which can go on floor as early as in May, will be executive produced by the showrunner of I Love You, America, Gavin Purcell, Sarah Silverman’s Hulu talk show.
The 21-year-old Jake is all set to executive produce and to host the show. Jake gained some popularity via his Vine (RIP) videos. He posted videos of himself with his group “Team 10” and equally moronic his brother Logan, who “are always making comedy vids, acting, doing action sports, and going on crazy adventures,” according to Logan’s YouTube page.
Logan has recently hit by an avalanche of backlash after his recently posted video in which he was exploring Japan’s Aokigahara forest, which is also known as the “Japanese Suicide Forest” and featuring what appeared as a handing dead body of a suicide victim.
YouTube has since removed Logan from its top advertising tie; his offensive video also let YouTube to indefinitely suspended Logan’s all original projects with the platform. Logan announced that he would donate a sum of $1 million to suicide prevention.
