Other promising debuts include World Star Hip Hop-produced The After Party, starring Kyle as an aspiring rapper who barfs on Wiz Khalifa after sampling his powerful weed; and Follow This, a documentary series following Buzzfeed’s editorial team, in which you will likely find out the secret algorithm behind which Disney princess most correlates to your taste in pizza.
