Up-and-coming talent has to up-and-come from somewhere. Find out how Miranda Sings got her start when all eight episodes of Haters Back Off premieres globally on October 14 at 12:01am PST exclusively on Netflix. Netflix has finally released the official trailer and poster for what is sure to become a cult classic.
Based on the character created by Colleen Ballinger, Haters Back Off! delves into the oddball family life of Miranda Sings. An incredibly confident, totally untalented star on the rise, Sings continues to fail upward by the power of her belief that she was born famous. It's just no one knows it yet.
The series stars Colleen Ballinger as Miranda Sings, Steve Little (Eastbound & Down) as Miranda's overly confident and utterly misguided Uncle Jim, Angela Kinsey (The Office) as Miranda's mom, Bethany. The series also stars Erik Stocklin, as Miranda's neighbor and best friend, Patrick. Colleen Ballinger, Christopher Ballinger, Perry Rein, Gigi McCreery, Jeff Kwatinetz and Josh Barry serve as an Executive Producers on the series and Haters Back Off is produced by Brightlight Pictures.
Miranda Sings was created in 2008 and became an Internet sensation on Youtube. She was noticed by comedian Jerry Seinfeld, who brought her on for an episode of his Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee series, interviewing Colleen Ballinger in character, the only time he has done such a thing on the series. He later appeared with Colleen in character on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, giving Miranda Sings a big boost in notoriety. Some even believe it helped her land a sitcom deal. Though, surprisingly, the credits don't list Jerry Seinfeld as a producer. Perhaps he'll show up for a cameo?
The first trailer for Haters Back Off shows Miranda Sings' origins as a Youtube superstar. And proves that her uncle is quite supportive of her endeavors, however dimwitted he may prove to be. It also explores the rampant hate that Miranda's videos acquire, and how she decides to deal with this unwanted negativity in her life. It all culminates in what could be described as one of the most disturbing moments to be seen on TV screens this year. Take a look courtesy of Netflix.
