A talented young cast, high production values, and covers of pop hits that have already spawned a spin-off soundtrack album. Side Effects has all the ingredients to be the new Glee or High School Musical.

An ensemble cast featuring top Youtube stars and up-and-coming actors, Side Effects stars Chester See (ChesterSee), Meg DeLacy, Lulu Antariksa, Cade Canon Ball, Finn Roberts, Keli Price, Lia Marie Johnson (LiaMarieJohnson), Taryn Southern (Taryn Southern), Meghan Rosette (MeghanRosette), Vincent Cyr, plus Jason Manuel Olazabal and Bruce Thomas. It also features Top 40 hits including Ke$ha’s “C’Mon,” David Guetta’s “Titanium,” and P!nk’s “Try,” and is told from the perspective of 16-year-old Whitney Connolly (DeLacy), who is prescribed a medication that comes with an interesting side effect – musical hallucinations — as she struggles with the death of her mother and the disappearance of her father.

One crucial difference: this TV show is not being aired by a traditional broadcaster. Instead, Side Effects is making its debut on YouTube as the latest original series developed by US multi-channel network AwesomenessTV.

The first 40-minute episode appeared on YouTube yesterday (29 October), introducing viewers to the central character Whitney, a 16 year-old who has “musical hallucinations”, played by Meg DeLacy.
