Let's face it. YouTube Red is basically the new cable.
Aside from famous YouTubers, like Joey Graceffa and Gigi Gorgeous, actors and directors make their mark, as well. In an eight-episode, half-hour series, Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes On Television* premieres October 25th. Starring Hansen, he plays an actor whom LAPD hires as an undercover cop. Along with trained, professional homicide detectives (played by Orange Is the New Black's Samira Wiley, for example), Hansen fights crime.
Rawson Marshall Thurber, who directed the comedies We're the Millers and Central Intelligence, also orchestrated YouTube Red's humorous hit. With gems, like Kristen Bell, Jon Cryer, and Joel McHale, Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes On Television* needs to be on your go-to list of shows to watch on a rainy day. (The first episode is even free!) So grab your Coke, pour your popcorn in a bowl, and gather your closest friends and family; you guys don't want to miss Castle 2.0.
According to an IMDb page, the show blends crime with comedy, and law enforcement with entertainment. "In this series, the LAPD thinks it's a good idea to form a task force partnering actors with homicide detectives. A super meta half-hour comedy, the show within a show is as much about Hollywood as it is an action-comedy procedural. Starring Ryan Hansen and Samira Wiley as his strait-laced partner Detective Jessica Mathers, the series features a who's who of stars playing bizarro versions of themselves," the database states.

From Hansen performing pole tricks to a stripper threatening him with a Samurai sword, Thurber and his cast pack a comedic punch. Even Kevin Hart agrees. Thurber says, "Ryan was so funny that he made Kevin laugh. It was the first and only time that I saw Kevin Hart break in a scene." Hart's seal of approval just gave you one more reason to watch the show. What's the worst that could happen? A laugh?
