Imagine having a television show based on your own life. Who would play you, and who would you cast as your friends? Well Juliette Brindak faced those questions herself with the recent release of YouTube Red’s Hyperlinked. The latest series in a wave of teen programming from YouTube Red, Hyperlinked is based on Juliette’s experience creating her website Miss O and Friends, a teen lifestyle site where girls can gather together in online community. After the success of her site, Juliette pitched the story of her journey to YouTube Red, and the rest is history!
Hyperlinked tells the story of five girls who come together to create their own website, by girls and for girls. The group navigates the typical drama of friends, school and relationships, but they use their experiences for good to help girls all across the globe find online community. The show also focuses heavily on girls pursuing interests in S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and features the girl group L2M in the leading roles.
We caught up with Juliette to get the scoop on the show and to find out more about her journey to success. Hear what she has to say about the show in the video above, plus get more info about the show straight from the girls of L2M!
