Zeus, a millennial-targeting SVOD network created by millennials, is set to launch.

Founded by social media darlings Amanda Cerny, King Bach and DeStorm Power, with television executive producer Lemuel Plummer (pictured), the nascent streaming service will showcase more than 30 series when it debuts globally on July 30th.

The programs include exclusive, original unscripted and scripted comedy, drama, talk, fitness and dance series starring and produced for Zeus by social media stars, including Cerney, Bach and Power.

In addition to the slate of series premiering on Zeus’ launch date, the SVOD is currently in production with more content creators whose series will be released on a rolling schedule soon after the network commences.

The network will be available to subscribers for $3.99 per month on multiple devices at The Zeus Network. The Zeus mobile and connected TV apps will also be available on Apple’s App store, the Google Play Store, and Amazon App Store.

Unscripted content set for the late July launch includes King Bach’s Your Best Life, which sees host and producer Bach visit such luminaries as music mogul Snoop Dogg and YouTuber Jake Paul in the environments that represent “the very center and power source of their lives.”

Meanwhile, A Taste Of Dance With Amanda Cerny follows social media influencer Cerny as she takes a dance lesson in salsa, hip-hop, belly dancing and more, from one of the top ten most-followed choreographers in the world. Each episode/lesson will be tutorial in nature and shot in real time, with Amanda and Zeus viewers learning a new dance routine step by step. The end of each episode will culminate with Amanda dancing out the entire routine for the very first time.

Life With Lil Tay stars the nine-year-old media sensation and features her “oversize, rebellious, personality,” while Talking Sh*T stars Torrei Hart, the ex-wife of superstar comedian Kevin Hart, and Georgia Reign, the ex-girlfriend of comedian Michael Blackson in a talk show that “not only pushes the envelope but blows it up.”

Lastly, Shirtless Cheffin’ stars America’s Next Top Model alum, Guess model and “shirtless chef” Don Benjamin and follows him as he creates assorted confections.

“We have assembled amazing storytellers, providing them with full-service production and marketing tools and a top-tier distribution platform to create and release their premium quality, original passion projects for their millions of fans,” said Lemuel Plummer, CEO and president, Zeus, in a statement. “Zeus is about greenlighting people, not shows.”
