Fans who’ve longed to watch as well as listen to Grace Helbig’s “Not Too Deep with Grace Helbig” podcast won’t have to wait much longer. Fullscreen has ordered 35 episodes of a video version of the talk show from the YouTube star/author/actress that will premiere on its SVOD platform with back-to-back installments on Sept. 12.
New episodes will debut every Monday on the $4.99/month subscription service, one week before the audio podcast is made available.
The 60-minute show was co-created by Helbig and Jack Ferry (“Mr. Student Body President,” “Oscar’s Hotel for Fantastical Creatures”), who also serve as executive producers. For the video version, they will receive production support from Fullscreen’s executive producer Michael Rucker.
Helbig has posted clips of her “Not Too Deep” interviews on her YouTube channel, but this will mark the first time a full 60-minute video version of the podcast has been made available.
Guests on “Not Too Deep” are scheduled to include Tyler Oakley and his frequent co-host and best friend Korey Kuhl, DIY guru Rosanna Pansino, “SuperFruit” hosts Mitch Grassi and Scott Hoying, comedian Mitchell Davis, comedian and musician Jon Cozart, comedy writers Jake Hurwitz and Amir Blumenfeld , Hannah Hart and Mamrie Hart.
Helbig tried her hand at doing a linear TV talker, “The Grace Helbig Show,” but it was canceled after an eight-episode, two-month run in the spring of 2015.
It was a rare professional failure for Helbig, who has long reigned as one of YouTube’s most high profile stars. In addition to her YouTube channel, which has racked up more than 3 million subscribers and 220 million views, her credits also include two New York Times best-sellers (2014’s “Grace’s Guide: The Art of Pretending to Be a Grown-Up” and 2016’s “Grace and Style: The Art of Pretending You Have It”), the online travel show “#HeyUSA,” the digital reboot of Sid & Marty Krofft’s campy ’70s series “Electra Woman and Dyna Girl” and the direct-to-digital feature “Camp Takota,” which she co-starred in with Hannah Hart and Mamrie Hart. She has re-teamed with the two unrelated Harts for the comedy feature “Dirty Thirty,” which will be released digitally and in a limited number of theaters on Sept. 23.
