Hayes Grier, a 17 year-old digital sensation who has over 6 million subscribers across Instagram and YouTube, isn’t just making waves on social media. The digital star is now making a name for himself on go90, a Verizon-owned video streaming service, with his show “Top Grier.” After first premiering in 2016, the unscripted comedy series, produced in part by Complex Networks, has been renewed for two more seasons.
Seasons two and three of “Top Grier,” which was co-created by Grier and INE’s Eric Day, will be available on the Verizon-owned platform in early 2018. The series follows the day-to-day antics of Grier’s tight-knit family and his group of friends.
Grier is also pushing new merchandise including T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, fidget spinners and select items designed by the star himself. The items are available for purchase starting today at RatedRed.com. An unknown portion of the proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross in response to the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.
“Working on this show has been such a journey. I get to work with my brother, my friends, family and even my dog,” exclaimed Grier. “I’m so proud that we filmed along the Gulf Coast. It was an incredible experience and the community really embraced us. My heart is broken seeing the devastation from the hurricane.”
“Top Grier” is executive produced by Eric Day and Mark Koops for INE Entertainment; Jason Newman and Kendall Rhodes for Untitled; and Justin Killion and Melanie Moreau for Complex Networks. Creative Artists Agency (CAA) packaged the project and represents both INE and Grier.
“Hats off to Complex Networks and go90 for trusting us to make our show. When Hayes and I told them what we wanted to do, they didn’t question us. Not once,” expressed Day. “We were able to trust our instincts and make a show that fans would know was made for them and for the way they watch.”
