E! announced today that YouTuber Grace Helbig is getting her own show on the entertainment network.
First, Chelsea Handler gets her name into everyone's homes and now E! hopes the same happens with Grace. Deadline reports that Helbig will star in a talk/comedy show for the network. Pop culture is her main focus as she will skewer and comment on as much topics as she can.
Under the working title The Grace Helbig Project, the internet star willl shoot a pilot for some point in the future. This will likely come after Chelsea Lately goes off air.
Helbig's Youtube channel has amassed over 1.8 milion subscribers. Her work began on My Damn Channel under the web series DailyGrace which focused on vlog style vignettes. At one point, she was even a correspondent for Attack of the Show (RIP).
Helbig is not the first Youtube personality to recieve a television show. Epic Meal Time just launched a show on FYI; that damn Annoying Orange has a show on Cartoon Network; and that Fred kid has had three movies for God's sake.
