Firm handshakes abound as we’ve inked a deal with one of our favorite
streamers humans: Herschel “Guy” Beahm IV AKA Dr. DisRespect. Is it the mullet? The mustache? The sheer athleticism? How about all of it? We’re filing this one under “TV” since that’s where we’re starting this lovely journey—bringing his tactically-vested persona to the small screen, but we’ll be bugging the good Dr. about everything we do—from comics to games and beyond and we’ll see where we go.
If you don’t know, Dr. DisRespect has over 100 million views on Twitch, 4.5 million followers across his social channels, and has an average of 20 thousand concurrent Twitch viewers. In 2017 he was acknowledged as Streamer of the Year at the E-Sports Industry Awards and Trending Gamer of the Year at the Game Awards. “I’m excited about the future of Dr. DisRespect!” says the man himself. “Extending his global domination and expanding into traditional entertainment while staying authentic to the character has been a goal of mine. I think fans will be thrilled to catch the two-time champ on the small screen. The future is bright with this partnership and we’re just getting started!”
Adds Skybound CEO David Alpert, “Dr. DisRespect is the best in the game, bar none. We’re excited to join the Champions Club and learn from the master.”
You said it, DA! Can’t wait to get moving with this. For now, we’ll have this on repeat all day*:
*along with his Twitch stream, naturally.
