SAN FRANCISCO, July 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Fandom, the fan-first global entertainment platform, launched its newest series, Fandom Uncovered, a docu-short series exploring the deepest facets of fan culture. Shining a spotlight on diverse fan communities, the series illuminates how the shared passion for a TV show, movie or game can bring people together, shape popular culture and transform lives.
The series' launch comes on the heels of the successful run of a pilot episode documenting the fan culture surrounding the Twilight Saga. With one million views in just the first five days post-launch, the pilot episode showed how 10 years after the film's release, Twilight fandom continues to grow and thrive, and has even become a major economic driver in a small Washington State town.
Fandom Uncovered will continue its in-depth exploration of what it means to be a fan with a succession of new episodes, the next one exploring the fan culture surrounding Dungeons & Dragons.
"Fans are at the heart of pop culture, and Fandom Uncovered tells the fascinating stories of how dedicated fans have impacted – and been impacted by – incredibly compelling works of art in movies, TV and gaming," said Roth Cornet, Head of Creative Development at Fandom. "Members of the Fandom community don't simply love their favorite TV series, movies, or video games. They want to share that love with other fans. They're yearning for community and camaraderie and for a space, whether it's online or in person where they can geek out and truly love what they love."
