NaikaRedSweaterNaika Toussaint books “Haters Back Off!

Haters Back Off is an upcoming television comedy series starring Colleen Evans, based on her character Miranda Sings, that is slated to debut on Netflix. The series centers around “the oddball family life of Miranda Sings, an incredibly confident, totally untalented star on the rise who continues to fail upward by the power of her belief that she was born famous – it’s just no one knows it yet.” Evans said that the show will depict Miranda’s origins and evolution on her “road to fame”, with appearances by YouTubers and other people she has met along the way.
The series’ eight episodes are expected to be released simultaneously. The show was developed by Evans and her brother, Christopher Ballinger, together with showrunners Perry Rein and Gigi McCreery. It is being produced by Brightlight Pictures. The show is named for Miranda Sings’ signature catchphrase.

The show will be the first scripted series created by a YouTube personality.
