Plot Synopsis

With only four days and a limited budget to create unique internet videos that best capture that week's theme, two teams compete for the $5,000 weekly cash prize as they try to impress the expert panel of viral-video judges. Whether the teams are comprised of a trio of college students or an entire team of TV professionals, the competitors brainstorm ideas, produce videos and apply finishing post-production effects to transform these ideas into viral videos: a fake movie trailer; turning a cliche into a 90-second action film; retelling a class fairy tale with a modern twist; creating a brand new sport -- and the promo video for it; a musical how-to video; and much more. The four-person judging panel includes three permanent judges -- Adam Sessler, Brittani Taylor and Sandeep Parikh -- and a different guest judge each week, such as: Andy Milonakis; YouTube lip-syncing sensation Keenan Cahill; 'Obama Girl' Amber Lee Ettinger; and more experts who know viral videos.
