YouTube Orders New Comedy ‘Liza on Demand’

Eight Half-Hour Episodes Ordered

YouTube has greenlit “Liza on Demand,” a new sitcom from the writers and directors of “Josie & The Pussycats” and “Mary + Jane.” Produced by digital-first comedy studio Above Average, “Liza on Demand” will follow the chaotic misadventures that ensue as the eponymous character takes on various gigs, tasks and odd jobs in her quest to climb the ranks and become an “elite tasker.” The eight episode, half-hour comedy will make its debut on YouTube Red in 2018 with Liza Koshy starring and executive producing.

Koshy will executive produce alongside writers Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont (“Josie & The Pussycats” and “Mary + Jane”). Courtney Carter will serve as an additional executive producer and Sam Childs will serve as producer.

“Liza on Demand” marks the second time Koshy has partnered with YouTube and Above Average following the release of her YouTube Red holiday special “Jingle Ballin’” in 2016.
