BuzzFeed profiles Shane Madej, Steven Lim, and Ryan Bergara have just announced their new venture — Watcher Entertainment. Hosts of some of the most popular shows on BuzzFeed, earlier this year they decided to quit their jobs and go out on their own in an effort to get “full creative control and ownership of their videos”, according to Variety.
Starting January 10, Watcher will be publishing content that they have worked for since then, in a format that will probably be very recognizable to fans of the trio. To start there will be a whooping seven new shows – Grocery Run, Top 5 Beatdown, Tourist Trapped, Homemade, Weird (And/Or) Wonderful World with Shane (and Ryan), Puppet History, Spooky Small Talk – plus the talk show Watcher Weekly to look forward to! The trailer for the network gives us a glimpse of what to expect, and I for one am very excited about every single one of these shows.
And for those of you out there worried about the fate of BuzzFeed Unsolved, Ryan Bergara had this to say on Twitter:
For all those asking… there will still be more ghouls to hunt and more crime to solve in 2020 at the Feed. https://t.co/u2rskZqnJP
