A new animated series backed by Mila Kunis is using blockchain technology as the basis for a Choose your own adventure approach.
The adult series, self-described as “South Park meets WWE,” follows a group of washed-up wrestlers longing for former glory, with characters voiced by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) stars Luke “Doc” Gallows, Karl “Machine Gun” Anderson and Rocky Romero.
The NFT component comes in the form of a “choose your own adventure” mode for owners of the show’s NFTs, allowing holders to vote on the direction of the show’s plot at the end of each episode.
What is the show about?
The Gimmicks is a workplace comedy about three washed-up wrestlers from the regional Wrestling Wrestling Wrestling League who bring in a controversial rookie in a desperate attempt to regain relevance and make it back to the main event.
The Gimmicks first season will include animated shorts that will be released every Friday. The end of each episode will have a Choose Your Own Adventure style decision to be voted on by Gimmicks owners.
This animated short series is written by “The Daves” (Dave Ihlenfeld & David Wright), is the brainchild of Toonstar (a Web3 animation studio) and voiced by former WWE stars Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, nZo Amore and Rocky Romero.
The NFTs go on sale March 18 on the show’s website and will be free to mint on the Solana blockchain.
Each Gimmicks NFT will be a distinct character with unique characteristics and personalities. Gimmicks will come with commercial rights so you can create your own narrative and have it included in The Gimmicks Wiki and perhaps even in the show!
What are The Gimmicks NFTs?
The Gimmicks are a collection of programmatically, randomly generated NFTs on the Solana blockchain. The NFTs represent unique characters that live in the universe of our animated series called The Gimmicks. Each character is comprised of unique traits and will be a 1 of 1.
The Gimmicks NFT holders will have early access to watch the animated short series we are creating, as well as participate in the creative process. The first season will be released weekly with creative input from NFT holders.
