If you ever wanted to have a say at a sitcom’s writers’ table, you may be interested in Mila Kunis’ upcoming show.
Actress Mila Kunis says her studio Sixth Wall is developing a cartoon series that uses feedback from NFT holders for future plots. Called “The Gimmicks,” this mature comedy is pitched as a fusion of “South Park” and the WWE.
According to Kunis, “The Gimmicks” will focus on a troupe of former pro wrestlers who want to relive their glory days. Many real-life WWE wrestlers will voice the principal characters in “The Gimmicks,” including Luke “Doc” Gallows and Karl “Machine Gun” Anderson.
“Family Guy” writers David Wright and Dave Ihlenfeld will bring their distinctive adult humor to “The Gimmicks” project.
People who buy an official “Gimmicks” NFT will have the right to vote on where they want the series to go. After each episode of “The Gimmicks,” NFT holders could choose from a few options that will influence the show’s future development.
People who purchase one of these NFTs enjoy full commercial rights to their one-of-one Gimmick. According to the Gimmicks’ website, users could develop their Gimmick’s identity on the official Gimmicks Wiki. Although not every Gimmick NFT will get featured on the official show, some NFT holders could see their avatar make a guest appearance.
The 10,000 Gimmicks NFTs will open for white-listed guests between March 15th and 17th. On March 18th at 9 AM PST, the remaining Gimmicks will go up for public sale on the Gimmicks’ website.
People who want to collect a Gimmick NFT need a Solana wallet like Phantom. The Gimmicks team says they will give these NFTs away, but customers need to pay gas fees with SOL.
Tinseltown is Tinkering with NFT Technology
“The Gimmicks” isn’t the first time Mila Kunis experimented with using NFTs in a new animated series. In July of 2021, Kunis raised money for her “Stoner Cats” show by auctioning Ethereum-based NFTs. Only people who held a Stoner Cat NFT could watch these episodes, which featured characters voiced by Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, and Jane Fonda.
As Rarity Sniper recently reported, actress Reese Witherspoon also wants to bring NFTs into TV and film. Specifically, Witherspoon is interested in developing storylines for the famous World of Women NFT collection. In addition to entertainment, this World of Women series will raise awareness for gender equality in Web3.
And it’s not just celebrities who are toying with using NFTs in films or TV shows. For instance, the Walt Disney Company is actively searching for an NFT expert. A former MGM executive is also working on an NFT-focused studio called Electromagnetic Productions.
