'Hart of Dixie' star Wilson Bethel introduces 'Stupid Hype': Return to the '90s with The CW's web series
The series follows a break dancer turned rising early '90s rap star. Expect parachute pants, old-school boom boxes, and, if this sneak-peek video is anything to go by, plenty of sweaty close-ups.
"Stupid Hype" is part of The CW's new digital platform, CWD, and will be available on CWTV.com this fall in short-form episodes. Bethel is not only starring in the show, but he also created it, and he and brother Charlie Bethel -- also known as Chuck Wild -- will write all the music. Dugan O'Neal is set to direct.
If "Stupid Hype" is even half as funny as "Call Me Doctor," Rachel Bilson's "Thug Lite" FunnyOrDie video that was written by Bethel and directed by O'Neal, it's sure to be a viral hit.
