We’re happy to announce our latest YouTube series, Scare PewDiePie! We teamed up with Felix Kjellberg (AKA PewDiePie) and Maker Studios to make a series where we basically torture poor Felix every episode. Says Felix, “I’m so excited to FINALLY share what I’ve been up to! Shooting a show like this in a completely new format has been so much fun! We just wrapped shooting but I still feel unsure every day if I’m safe or not from another scare. I can’t wait…”
“This has been a big year for Skybound and Scare PewDiePie is a huge part of what has made 2015 our biggest year yet. I am excited that we can finally talk about it,” said Robert Kirkman. “Working with Felix, YouTube and Maker Studios on this venture has been creatively exhilarating and just plain fun. I trust audiences will love the show as much as we loved creating it.”
Scare PewDiePie will drop Felix, completely unknowingly, into horrifying scenarios straight out of his favorite video games. Our team had a blast working with Maker Studios to constantly try to surprise and kill—I mean scare—the YouTube celeb. Check out the trailer below!
Scare PewDiePie will be coming to YouTube Red in 2016!
Congratulations Felix Kjellberg (AKA PewDiePie) on award for Gaming Personality of the year in The Golden Joystick Awards 2015 competition.
