Marvel and Maker Studios, two Disney-owned entertainment companies, are set to unveil their very first co-production: Marvel’s Off the Rack, a new comedic variety show to run on Verizon’s go90.
The 12-episode series is set to debut on the mobile-only platform April 13, with episodes rolling out once a week until the end of June. It’s hosted by YouTube creator Danika Massey (pictured). Better known online as Comic Book Girl 19 (441,000 subscribers and 28 million views), Massey will discuss — and defend — Marvel heroes with guests, including rapper Method Man, voice actor Billy West (Ren & Stimpy, Futurama and Buggs Bunny), along with various creators from the Maker multi-channel network.
Each episode will focus on a different Marvel character. First up is Peter Parker (for complete novices, that’s Spider-Man).
The series was first announced in October when Maker struck a content deal with go90. Some of the series to debut
on the platform to date include Prank School with Rahat, Defining Beauty and Geekenders. Upcoming series include an untitled project starring America’s Best Dance Crew winners The Jabbawockeez and an untitled docuseries exploring the world of fantasy gameplay.
