‘The Awesomes’ Debuted Today, Has Product Placement in Every Episode
Seth Meyers’ “The Awesomes” was released on Hulu in a two–piece pilot sponsored in part by Jack Link’s. The jerky’s in all 10 episodes of the show and, in some cases, even includes the Sasquatch character from the brand’s commercials in a partnership between the show’s studio, Jack Link’s, and Jack Link’s distributor. Meyers and Mike Shoemaker wrote the jerky directly into every episode as gags they’re calling “tags,” but also wrote another 30-second spot and a 60-second spot featuring characters from the show.
