Facebook Watch has original shows and popular videos including Human Discoveries that will star Zac Efron and Anna Kendrick! You may remember these two from the funny and adventurous movie Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. Well, we are all happy to find out they will be filming together again in the new tv series.
Human Discoveries is an animated comedy where a group of friends are living at the dawn of human civilization. They are the first to discover necessities like fire and the wheel. As the tv series goes on, they stumble onto humanity’s best and worst innovations such as art, alcohol, fashion, racism, small talk and monogamy.
According to deadline, Efron and Kendrick will also serve as executive producers alongside Chris Bruno, David Howard Lee, Corey Campodonico, Alex Bulkley, Kirk J. Rudell, Jason Barrett and Mike Simkin. The cast will also include the stars Lamorne Morris, Jillian Bell, Paul Scheer and Lisa Kudrow.
Matthew Henrick who is the head of content planning and strategy of Facebook Watch states “facebook’s original-content strategy is geared around programming that has the potential to build fan communities through interactive social features like groups and watch parties.” He also adds “investing in content that drives meaningful interactions is core to our strategy - Human Discoveries’ not only have the potential to be buzz-worthy and immersive, but their concepts also make it possible to leverage the social fabric of Facebook in unique and creative ways.”
