Discovery Digital Networks’ Animalist, a video network devoted to animal and pet lovers, is launching a new show about the disgusting side of the animal kingdom.
“Weird Gross Beautiful” premieres today with an episode focused on maggots. The show, presented in a vlog format, will be hosted by YouTuber Catie Wayne, whose BoxxyBabee channel features more than 329,000 subscribers and close to 39 million views.
In a testament to multi-platform synergy, Wayne and “Weird Gross Beautiful” will also have access to Discovery Communications’ immense library of animal-related footage (owning Animal Planet, there’s plenty of it). New episodes of “Weird Gross Beautiful” will debut on Animalist and its own YouTube channel every Tuesday.
