Yesssssss!! According to Deadline, digital star and content creator Quinta Brunson has landed a co-star gig on the CW’s new comedy pilot, The End of the World as We Know It.
Going by Quinta B. on social media, the Philadelphia native will play Ruby, a millennial woman recruited by a space cop to help find some deadly aliens that escaped a prison spaceship that crashed in Southern California. Okay! But her character isn’t the only one helping to find these aliens, who have now disguised themselves as “eccentric” men and women from Los Angeles. She gets some help from Kate, played by Gage Golightly, who you may have seen in MTV’s Teen Wolf.
As someone who lived in LA for almost 10 years, I can say that distinguishing the “eccentric” Angelenos from the “normal” ones will be hella hard. They’re both practically the same, so seeing Quinta B. help the space cop figure out who’s who will be a hilarious journey that I am excited to follow.
For those of you like, “Who is this Quinta B. anyway?” I’ll just drop one of her many fire viral videos below, a milly rock ’round-the-world that has made me look at international travel differently. This will make you never forget her…Note that anyone that goes that hard in Egypt is an immediate fave.
In case that wasn’t enough, according to People, Quinta B. is one of the youngest content creators at Buzzfeed Motion Pictures. She sold her first comedy series Broke to Youtube Red, and last year, she took on Up for Adoption, available on a Verizon streaming service called go90. With over 300,000 followers on Twitter, and over 800,000 on Instagram, the 28-year-old is doing her thing. As Charlamagne tha God would say “Let’s drop one of Clue’s bombs” for her.
And she even made history! In 2014, one of her videos called The Girl Who’s Never Been on a Nice Date was the first to go viral off the Instagram platform.
“That was very interesting,” Quinta B. told People, noting that she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a comedy career. “For me it was encouraging. It was validating and it was a really happy experience. It was one of those moments where this is what I came out here to do and I actually was doing it.”
I am hoping that The End of The World as We Know It gets a full series order. But in the meantime, check out the hilarious jean-button-poppin’ video of Quinta B. displaying extra basic behavior when she’s taken out on a “nice date.” Can anyone relate?
