YouTube is pushing hard to compete with other content platforms and has given the green light to Lionsgate’s series “Step Up,” based on the film franchise of the same name.
Adam Shankman, Jennifer Gibgot and Meredith Milton, who produced the films, will exec-produce the series, along with the stars of the first “Step Up” films, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum. Hulu has announced casting for “Dimension 404,” a six-episode sci-fi series from Freddie Wong, Matthew Arnold and Dez Dolly of RocketJump. Cast members will include Patton Oswalt, Ashley Rickards and Sterling Beaumon, as well as previously
announced Joel McHale, Sarah Hyland, Lea Michele, Robert Buckley and Ryan Lee.
