It’s interesting that YouTube canceled a few series they had signed. I wonder if viewer numbers was the sole decision for that?
Anyway, here’s the biggest news:
Kyncl also announced YouTube is working with actor Will Smith, who on Sept. 25 (Smith’s 50th birthday) will bungee-jump from a helicopter over the Grand Canyon for a charity fundraising event — a stunt dubbed “The Jump Off,” which will be live-streamed on YouTube. Smith’s Grand Canyon leap will be produced in partnership with Westbrook Entertainment. The news drew gasps from the audience. Smith launched his YouTube channel in December, and already has 1.8 million subscribers.
Smith accepted another channel’s challenge but had to delay participating in it because he was shooting a movie. Now we’ve found out the date: September 25th. What a wait!
Smith is a genuine guy. Check out the day that changed his life.
