THE HILLYWOOD SHOW Joins the Nerdist Alliance
By Amy Ratcliffe on July 1, 2014
Yes, The Hillywood Show is the newest member of the Nerdist Alliance. The announcement about our new partnership dropped at VidCon last weekend, and we couldn’t be happier. Sisters Hilly and Hannah Hindi have been posting videos on YouTube for seven years and making hilarious song and dance parodies of geek franchises like the Warm Bodies, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Doctor Who. The comedy duo’s YouTube videos already have over 100,000,000 views, and the partnership will help them make even more content.
Their videos are a natural fit for Nerdist and joining the Alliance means The Hillywood Show will get to play on a bigger stage. Nerdist President Adam Rymer shared, ”Hilly and Hannah are amazing talents. We are thrilled to bring their star into the Nerdist universe and look forward to venturing together in exploration of the digital future.”
Hilly and Hannah are exciting about teaming up with the Alliance, too: “We feel so excited and blessed to now be partnered with Nerdist! Having Chris Hardwick and the Nerdist team’s support is an answer to our prayers. We can’t wait to bring our fans more parodies!”
