The series include: The Outs, a web series from Adam Goldman and Sasha Winters; Darby Forever, a short film from Saturday Night Live breakout cast member Aidy Bryant; and Bianca Del Rio’s Rolodex of Hate Comedy Special: Live from Austin (pictured).
“This new slate of Vimeo Originals exemplifies the fresh, unique voices of Vimeo creators who are propelling online storytelling and entertainment to new levels of quality,“ said Kerry Trainor, CEO, Vimeo. “Vimeo empowers today’s brightest talent to develop their best work, with total creative freedom, and bring it directly to a worldwide audience on Vimeo with no interruptive advertising.”
