ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Mirfandas rejoice, the Queen Miranda Sings is coming to Netflix.
Netflix has been giving fans a variety of new popular shows that can only be found with the video on-demand provider, such as Daredevil, Orange is the New Black and House of Cards. Now, Netflix has ordered eight episodes to be created based on the popular YouTube character Miranda Sings called Haters Back Off.
Miranda Sings was created in 2008 by Colleen Ballinger Evans. Evans portrays the character of Miranda, who is confident that she is the most popular person that anyone could ever meet. She also believes that she was born famous and her haters are only jealous of her ability to sing, dance and of her many baes. She does collaboration videos with various other YouTubers and celebrities, including a short video that she worked with Jerry Seinfield. Miranda even wrote a book called Selp Helf. She has over 5 million subscribers and even goes on tour around the world.
The show will be based on Miranda’s odd everyday life, even being named after one of her major catch phrases. This will be the first time a YouTube personality has the chance to have their own scripted streaming series.
The transition from YouTube to Netflix won’t be that big of a leap for Mirfandas, with Miranda producing videos on her channel regularly. Miranda’s fans are no strangers to different forms of media, which can be noted with their interactions with her via Twitter for example. Since Netflix users can access the website on their computers, it shouldn’t be too difficult for her fans to easily follow the shenanigans they already know and love from Miranda.
Miranda even released an announcement video to inform her fans about the new series, already gaining over a million views since it was uploaded on January 14th.
Even though Miranda believes that she could set up everything for the series by herself, she won’t be alone on getting the series done. The project will be worked on by Colleen Ballinger-Evans, her brother Chris Ballinger, Perry Rein and Gigi McCreery who will all serve as executive producers.
There has been no official release date for the series to air on Netflix but surely Miranda will let everyone know as soon as she knows.
