E! DELIVERS THE FUNNY IN 140 CHARACTERS WITH FIRST SCRIPTED DIGITAL COMEDY SERIES "HASHTAGGERS"
Series Premieres Tuesday, February 8th On E! Online (www.eonline.com/Hashtaggers) And Features Guest Stars William Shatner, Ian Ziering, Johnny Weir, Kevin Smith, Snooki, William Sasso, Heidi Montag, Stassi Schroeder and Zuri Hall
Los Angeles, CA - January 25, 2016 - These days the power of celebrity is often measured by their social media strength, and E! takes a unique, hilarious look at that reality with the network's first scripted digital comedy series "Hashtaggers." Starring Kimberley Crossman, Peet Guercio, Patty Guggenheim and Carl Tart, the series features a completely dysfunctional group of people who work together at a social media agency geared to celebrity clientele - but their actions consistently wreak havoc on the stars involved. On Tuesday, February 8th, E! News will sneak peek an episode of "Hashtaggers," and then all nine episodes will be available on E! online and across E!'s social media platforms and distribution partners.
Where does Ian Ziering go when he needs to step up his digital game? Who does Snooki alert when two million Twitter followers go missing? When William Shatner needs an epic Twitter Rant who does he request? They call the "Hashtaggers." The agency is run by Nikki Hart, an intense, yet often completely unprofessional leader, whose lust for her brainless assistant causes its own problems. Her team consists of: Kal Johnson (Tart), a trendy hipster who has made pop culture his life; Colin Greenberg (Guerico), an ex-child star who is still trying to make it as a grown-up; and Molly Scharf (Guggenheim), a sarcastic, free-spirit who has an odd sexual tension with Colin, no matter how much she can't stand him. This team will do anything to make their clients happy, but their techniques are far from professional. Other "clients" this season include: Will Sasso, Kevin Smith, Johnny Weir, Heidi Montag, Stassi Schroeder and Zuri Hall.
In Hollywood, you'll see that no one knows 140 characters like these four characters when "Hashtaggers" premieres on Tuesday, February 8th on E! Online (www.eonline.com/Hashtaggers).
"Hashtaggers" is created/produced by Stun Creative. Matti Leshem, Josh Cohen, Mark Feldstein and Brad Roth are executive producers along with Project Cobalt, a new initiative helping emerging creators bring their ideas to life.
