AwesomenessTV signed two of Vine’s superstars to its network. Nash Grier and Cameron Dallas will now be able to create outside of Vine’s six-second parameters, said Awesomeness founder and CEO Brian Robbins. Grier and Dallas will also be making a movie with Robbins, who previously worked on films with YouTube star FRED, the result of which served as inspiration for AwesomenessTV to begin with, according to the founder.
Furthermore, Grier and Dallas will get exclusive representation for sponsorship from all social media platforms (other than Vine) by Awesomeness, as well as for advertising on YouTube. The two Vine-creators have nearly 12 million followers on the app between them, with Grier also boasting about 3.5 million Twitter and Instagram followers plus his 7.5 million on Vine. Only sixteen years old, he now plans to focus on his expanding YouTube channel, which showcases humor you’d expect from someone at least in their twenties, perhaps.
Meanwhile, 19-year-old Dallas has also added YouTube to his repertoire. With 4.1 million followers on Vine, this handsome, young adult hopes to attract more male viewers in addition to his largely female fan base.
