YOUTUBE GREENLIGHTS SECOND SEASON OF HIT COMEDY SERIES FROM CREATOR LIZA KOSHY "LIZA ON DEMAND"

Season Two of Fan Favorite from Above Average and Writers Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont to Debut in 2019

Los Angeles, CA -- January 24, 2019 -- YouTube announced that it has ordered a second season of the popular series LIZA ON DEMAND produced by Above Average Productions. Since its debut on June 27, 2018, the first episode of LIZA ON DEMAND has generated over 20 million views. The eight-episode, half-hour series will begin production this spring and debut on YouTube Premium in 2019.

In LIZA ON DEMAND, viewers follow the chaotic misadventures that ensue as the eponymous character takes on various tasks and odd jobs, as she tries to get ahead in the gig economy. Featuring a young diverse cast, season one took satirical stabs at topics like gender bias and romantic tropes. Season two promises even more laughs and misadventures as Liza takes on a brand new set of challenges.

Series star Liza Koshy (Freakish, Jingle Ballin', Boo! a Madea Halloween) is set to return for a second season along with cast member Travis Coles (By the Book, Superstore, Great News). Koshy has two wildly successful YouTube channels with a cumulative audience of more than 24.1 million subscribers and 2.5 billion-plus views. She is also a co-creator and executive producer of the series.

LIZA ON DEMAND is being produced by Above Average, a digital-first entertainment company founded in 2012 by Lorne Michaels' Broadway Video. This is the third time Koshy has partnered with YouTube and Above Average, following the successful first season of LIZA ON DEMAND last year and the YouTube Original holiday special JINGLE BALLIN' in 2016. Along with Koshy, Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont (Josie & The Pussycats and Mary + Jane) and Courtney Carter will serve as executive producers on the series, with Sam Childs serving as producer.

"Liza is an incredible talent who is fearless in her comedy," said Susanne Daniels, Global Head of Original Content, YouTube. "We're thrilled with the fan reaction and huge success of season one, and look forward to working with the creative minds behind the series to bring back this hilarious cast for more adventures."

"I'm so excited to continue developing the world and characters of Liza On Demand with YouTube and Above Average. We made one baby together, and I'm excited to do it again... and again... and again. I'm manifesting," said Liza Koshy. "Looking forward to sharing season two with everyone."

Koshy is represented by CAA, Carter Media Group and Hansen, Jacobson.
