A new mock-up series called Players will follow the plight of a fictional League of Legends team as it struggles to claim its first world championship after years of failure. At this point there isn’t much detail at this point, but yes Variety The report says the series will focus on an unlikely pair of players – a 17-year-old and a 27-year-old veteran – who must put aside their differences and egos and work together to bring gold. .
Fake documentaries are like documentaries, unless their subject matter is mostly or totally fictional. A recent popular example is the American Vandal series on Netflix, a parody of documentaries about real crimes about a boy who draws cocks in cars. In fact, the creators of this series – Tony Yacenda and Dan Perrault – are also behind Players and will serve as executive producers.
Riot Games is also involved in the production of the series – the Variety report includes the study, although there is no individual, as executive producer – which could give players a brighter authenticity than any other. way could be missing and even pave the way real LoL teams will appear in background roles.
The integrated audience for the players is also impressive: seconds Reuters, the total combined number of spectators at the 2020 World League of Legends Championship was 50 million. And who knows? It might even be good: I didn’t have high expectations for Mythic Quest, Rob McElhenney’s comedy series about a game studio that became the most popular MMO in the world, but it ended up being pretty good and was recovered for a second season that aired in May.
Players are developing for Paramount + and does not have a set debut date at this time. I have contacted Riot for more information and will update if I receive a response.
