Staff Reporter | On 06, Dec 2016Reading time: 3 mins
Cameron Dallas’ Netflix series will be released just in time for Christmas this year – and a new trailer gives us an idea of what it looks like.
Called Chasing Cameron, it follows Dallas and his close circle of friends and family, as he looks to take his career to the next level. “It’s not all selfies and Vine videos”, says Netflix, promising to peel back the public online personal and examine the contract with who he is in his personal life.
Dallas, for those who don’t know, is a social media star, with tons of followers built up from his popular Vine videos. Netflix is increasingly keen to tap into that potential audience: earlier this year, it ordered an original series from YouTube hit Miranda Sings. Now, they’ve turned to Vine’s Cameron Dallas.
What’s it like being a Vine celebrity? And what, for that matter, is an original Netflix documentary about that like? This new teaser is your answer. The show is released globally on Netflix on 27th December, just in time for teenagers to reclaim the living room sofa and binge their way through before the Christmas holidays are over.
Vine star Cameron Dallas gets his own Netflix series
23rd June 2016
Vine star, digi-entrepreneur and all-round web celeb Cameron Dallas is getting his own Netflix series.
The show, which is currently untitled, follows Dallas and his close circle of friends and family, as he looks to take his career to the next level. “It’s not all selfies and Vine videos”, says Netflix, promising to peel back the public online personal and examine the contract with who he is in his personal life.
Executive Produced by Jane Lipsitz and Dan Cutforth of Magical Elves and Brillstein Entertainment Partners Ben Curtis, Sanford Wernick and Jon Liebman. Cameron Dallas and Bart Bordelon also serve as Executive Producers. Cameron is represented by WME, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and attorney Adam Kaller.
Dallas, for those who don’t know, is kind of a big deal, He’s got 9.4 million followers on Twitter’s video platform, Vine, making him one of the most followed people on there. He’s also got huge followings on YouTube, Twitter and more – Vine, notes a report from Zefr released yesterday, is actually now a promotional platform for all his other accounts and off-digital work, including a music career (he released a single last year). Zefr’s research ranks people online in terms of their influence on social media, with Dallas number five in the list of social media influencers and number for Best All-Around Engagement across a window of 90 days.
Dallas, meanwhile, is no stranger to long-form content, as well as shorter videos: he has previously starred in AwesomenessTV’s comedy, Expelled, and Fullscreen’s high school series, The Outfield, both projects produced by YouTube MCNs, placing him firmly in the upper elite of the online video world.
Netflix is increasingly keen to tap into that world: this is the second original show the streaming giant has commissioned from web celebs, with YouTuber Miranda Sings (aka. Colleen Ballinger) getting a scripted original series, Haters Back Off, which is set to arrive later this year.
For a taste of Dallas in action, here’s a recent YouTube video:
