WHAT IS WAYNE?

From the writers of Deadpool and Zombieland, Wayne is a gritty, hilarious, and sometimes bloody road trip adventure tale of young love and reckless youth. When the titular teenage renegade’s 1978 Pontiac Trans Am is stolen from his father on his deathbed, Wayne sets out with nothing but a dirt bike and his new crush Del to take back his rightful inheritance. From Southie to South Florida, it is Wayne and Del against the world in this propulsive new must-watch show.

PREVIOUS YOUTUBE SCREENINGS:

This summer we debuted Youtube Original’s new series Impulse at 10 campuses. Each campus got a turnkey screening package as well as a bunch of Google giveaways. Florida State won our contest for an all-expenses paid trip to Los Angeles to meet and network with some of the biggest names in entertainment.

TESTIMONIAL FROM TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY

“We don’t think YouTube or Recess could make the Impulse experience any better. We were provided money to enhance the event as well leeway to market however we wanted. This event was a fun way for our creative minds to think out of the box and step out of our comfort zone”
