The non-fungible television space, which is admittedly small though it is blossoming, too, has just got bigger. This is due to the announcement of The Gimmicks, made on Monday. The project is an animated show backed by none other than Mila Kunis‘ Sixth Wall production company.
The adult series, which has been self-described as “South Park meets WWE,” follows a bunch of washed-up wrestlers that yearn for the glory from their former days. The show includes characters voiced by WWE stars such as Luke “Doc” Gallows, Karl “Machine Gun” Anderson, and Rocky Romero, per a press release.
The NFT aspect of the project comes in the form of a “choose your own adventure” mode targeted to owners of the show’s NFTs, which would enable them to get a vote in the direction of the show’s plot at the end of every episode.
The NFTs for the show will be live on the 18th of March and can be found on the show’s website. They’ll be free to mint on the Solana blockchain.
” I see the tech and community that comes with NFTs and Web 3 allowing for the audience to directly communicate with and inform creators of what they like and what they don’t,” said Kunis in a statement. “There is space for traditional film and television development as well as this more Wild West fun chaos that comes along with developing in Web 3.”
Kunis’ vision for crypto came about last year in summer, with the crowdfunding of her animated series titled “Stoner Cats” via an NFT collection, token-gating episodes. That project was on Ethereum.
The creation of Kunis’ new show is in partnership with Web3 animation studio Toonstar. It’ll be written by Dave Ihlenfeld and David Wright, who previously worked on household hits such as “Family Guy” and “The Simpsons.”
