Haters, you now have a scheduled time to back off.
Netflix’s new original series starring YouTube star Colleen Ballinger — better known as the dame of tone-deaf, Miranda Sings — has set its premiere date. EW has learned& Haters Back Off will debut its eight-episode first season on Oct. 14, launching globally on Netflix. (Ballinger also announced the date during her appearance at VidCon.)
The half-hour single-cam comedy series follows Miranda and her odd family, including her Uncle Jim (Steve Little), an awkward and occasionally inappropriate champion of his niece and her unending efforts at reaching fame; her mother, Bethany (The Office’s Angela Kinsey), whose doting behavior may explain how Miranda turned out the way she did; and Patrick (Erik Stocklin), Miranda’s neighbor and best friend.
Both Jim and Bethany have been mentioned on Miranda’s YouTube channel but have never been seen before by viewers. And Miranda, just like in her online iteration, is overly confident yet completely untalented, and continues to “fail upward by the power of her belief that she was born famous.”
Haters Back Off is created and executive produced by Ballinger. Perry Rein and Gigi McCreery will serve as showrunners and executive producers along with Christopher Ballinger, Jeff Kwatinetz, and Josh Barry.
In anticipation of the October premiere, spend some time getting acquainted with Miranda on her YouTube channel.
