The Office star Rainn Wilson is developing a scripted comedy series chronicling a handful of Vine’s most popular video makers as they try to make it big in Hollywood.
According to Deadline, Hollywood and Vine will feature Internet celebrities Lele Pons, Jerry Purpdrank, Simone Shepherd and Christian DelGrosso.
Curtis Lepore had been attached to the project, but dropped out following an online backlash over rape accusations made earlier in this year by fellow Vine celebrity Jessi Smiles. “After much consideration, the decision was made with Curtis Lepore to mutually part ways on SoulPancake’s television project featuring Vine stars,” Wilson announced on his Facebook page. “We felt this was the best decision for everyone involved. We wish Curtis all the best in all his future endeavors.”
