The Gimmicks NFT aminated TV show is coming soon, and it is a game-changing community-based project featuring former WWE wrestlers. Developed by Web3 animation studio Toonstar and Sixth Wall, the digital arm of Mila Kunis’ Orchard Farm Productions, the TV series will utilise NFTs.
NFT holders will take a central role in developing the story through The Gimmicks NFT collection. The Gimmicks is an animated web series about washed-up professional wrestlers trying to reinvent themselves. It takes place in the fictional regional promotion, the Wrestling Wrestling Wrestling League.
Importantly, this collection of 10,000 NFTs on the Solana blockchain is entirely free. In fact, the public mint starts in three days.
How does The Gimmicks NFT collection work?
This project is the latest example of NFT utility and how it can give people a voice in something they love. It is ‘choose your own adventure’ on a broader democratic basis. Basically, owners of The Gimmicks NFT collection will decide how the story continues. Every episode will end on a cliffhanger, and it is down to the community to figure out what happens next.
We have all watched a TV show and wished that something else had happened. Now, thanks to the utility of NFTs and the focused community approach by Toonstar and Sixth Wall, you can have input on these decisions.
The NFTs are unique characters, forming the community around the project and the wider ecosystem. NFT holders will also gain access to the TV series earlier than others.
The famous actress Mila Kunis is heavily involved in the project. She is one of the founders of the parent company of Sixth Wall, Orchard Farm Productions. She believes that The Gimmicks offers an easy way for new people to enter the world of Web 3.0 and NFTs.
“It goes along with our mission of onboarding new people into Web3,” Kunis said. “We know the NFT-curious can be afraid to jump in, but Toonstar’s ideas, tech, and content, combined with the low transaction fees and low environmental impact of the Solana blockchain, make this an easy entry point.”
As stated above, Solana is known for its low environmental impact and low transaction fees. This aspect is essential for the on-chain social layer of the project.
The team behind the TV series
Written by comedy experts Dave Ihlenfeld and David Wright and produced by the innovative Web 3.0 animation studio, Toonstar, there are high expectations. The Gimmicks is “South Park meets WWE, but interactive and greasier”, according to Toonstar CEO John Attanasio. The writers have previously worked on Family Guy and Star Trek.
What’s more, the show features exceptional talent, including former WWE professional wrestlers, The Good Brothers, Rocky Romero and nZo. Reportedly, there are also several guest appearances in the works. Perhaps we will see Mila Kunis herself.
Finally, The Gimmicks will begin releasing episodes this Friday and do so every week on the official Website. To take part in this whacky, innovative NFT TV series, get your hands on a free NFT during the public mint this week.
